The primary focus of this course is to provide you with an overview of communication and the importance of communication during engagements.
An internal auditor’s success greatly depends on interaction with other people. In short, people skills greatly impact audit engagement work, as well as personal objectives.
The importance of communication is expressed in The IIA Practice Guide “Demonstrating the Core Principles for the Professional Practice,” available on the IIA website. The seventh core principle states “effective internal auditing requires effective communication,” which relates to several International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing in The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF).
