This updated edition provides internal auditors with guidance on how to put into practice The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF). It represents a major restructuring of the earlier works, reflecting the new IPPF and Internal Audit Mission Statement, which came out in 2015 and introduced the Core Principles and Implementation Guides. It reflects the 2017 revision to the Standards and looks at internal audit application of the IPPF through a maturity model lens and from the perspective of small audit departments.


This useful guide serves as a “crash course,” outlining the specific actions auditors must take to conform with the Standards and the other elements of the IPPF. 

It provides:


  •          Further explanations of meanings behind the principles-based Standards
  •          Practical tools and techniques for delivering high-quality internal audit services
  •          Examples of leading practices in implementing the Standards and best practice internal auditing
  •          Discussion of trends and various points of view on topics core to the profession


The internal audit profession is at new heights of organizational investment and stature. Its importance is widely recognized by boards, audit committees, and management. The fact that the profession has one global set of standards, united across the world, that have been embraced by many regulators, legal systems, and governance bodies shows the strength of this foundation.

Assessing Ethics in Your Organization 19Dec22ONLINE

A strong ethical culture is the foundation of good organizational governance. An ethical culture is created through a robust ethics program that sets expectations for acceptable behavior within an organization and by its external partners. It includes effective board oversight, a strong tone-at-the-top, and organizationwide commitment, as well as a customized code of conduct; ethics training, communications, and system monitoring; and an incident reporting system. Are you prepared to assess your organization for policies and processes concerning ethics? This course is a good place to start. It provides a comprehensive overview of the elements of organizational ethics and the responsibilities for establishing and maintaining an ethical climate in an organization. Explore the roles of internal audit and compliance departments in supporting and assessing the ethical climate, examine approaches to auditing ethics, and determine the best approaches for reporting the results of an ethics audit.

Root Cause Analysis for Enhancing Internal Audit Effectiveness 6Dec22ONLINE

When a problem occurs in an organization, it is followed by many questions — the first of which, and probably the most important, is “why?” To answer this all-important question thoroughly and completely, internal auditors should seek to identify the problem’s origin — the root cause. A root cause analysis should be a core building block to help answer the question of “why,” and enhance an organization’s continuous improvement efforts. This one-day course will explore key root cause analysis tools and techniques that can be utilized in the planning, fieldwork, and reporting phases of an internal audit engagement; and enhance audit effectiveness, strengthen audit observations, and facilitate deeper discussions with management on issues identified. These tools can be used apart from or in conjunction with existing audit methodologies, tools, and techniques. You will have the opportunity to practice and apply the skills learned through a case study and exercises, which you will be able to integrate into your audit engagements.
