Programme Objective
 
ISCA’s well-received Technical Clinic series will continue this year under the new name “Tech Lab”. Tech Lab provides a platform for practitioners and managers, to share and discuss technical issues in a focus group discussion setting moderated by an experienced facilitator.
 
The Tech Lab includes a bite-sized presentation on key areas relating to the topic along with some important insights. It is highly interactive with many opportunities for discussions. Case studies will also be used to reinforce the concepts and to provide practice in applying them. Be engaged and educated in a casual setting of information exchange

Programme Outline


Planning is the bedrock of the audit. In the performance of a risk-based audit, adequate planning is of paramount importance as it sets the direction of audit efforts towards the areas expected to be most susceptible to material misstatements.
 

  • How can the auditor prepare a more efficient and effective audit plan?
  • How to do proper risk assessment and set an appropriate materiality level?
  • How to tailor the audit approach and save time on the overall audit without compromising audit quality?
 
Sign up for the ISCA Tech Lab to share your experience and learn from other fellow participants.
