Statistical Data Analytics In Excel – Section A: The Audit Risk Model and Why Use Analytics?
The audit risk model quantifies the audit process. Remember it?? It encourages efficiency and effectiveness… plan more, and audit way, way less! Let's refresh the concepts and look at it from a different angle. You will find the different costs of evidence and their impact on your audit efficiency staggering! Find out why you need to maximise the use of analytics in your audit programs.
