“Auditing Culture and Business Ethics”


Course Description

Increasingly both organisational culture and business ethics are being highlighted by regulators, independent commissions, legal bodies, media and other commentators as key reasons for management failure, poor decision making, fraud and unacceptable individual behaviour. But how can boards, leaders and audit committees be confident that their organisation is living up to its cultural values and ethical commitments? How are they managing the associated cultural and ethical risks to reduce reputational, people, legal, financial and other critical impacts?

This course will equip you with an overview of the cultural and ethical challenges facing organisations today, and give you the confidence to include these interesting, but challenging, subjects on your internal audit team’s periodic plan. This course will help you develop a practical framework for approaching the assurance of cultural and ethical performance and enable you to deliver insight and value in your work in these critical areas.

Who should attend?

Heads of audit, internal audit managers, senior internal auditors and internal auditors involved in planning and providing assurance on culture and ethics, or those wanting to find out more about internal audit developments in these emerging areas. It is particularly relevant for those wanting to add greater value and deliver enhanced insight.

Course Programme

This course will take you through the following learning steps:

  • A targeted overview of culture, including theory, models and current issues
  • Why organisational culture is so topical
  • Developing a practical framework for approaching an audit of culture
