Monitoring the PDCA (Deming Cycle) with the Audit Software

Plan

The audit planning should be in line with the risk profile and controls surrounding your organisation's strategy and processes.

Do

Data collection: Carefully go through the steps of the implementation process for each audit programme. This includes analysis, risk assessment and analysis controls. This process helps to identify problems, gather evidence and report findings and recommendations.

Check

Evaluate the results and the process of implementing the audit and improve where possible. By linking risk and control, processes can be improved, and more synergy can be achieved.

Act

Prevent a barrage of recommendations and ensure overview and good monitoring so that findings and recommendations can actually be followed up.  

Every Employee Becomes an Internal Auditor with a Self-Assessment Tool

Many organizations still rely too much on the internal audit department. As a result, people are busy collecting documents and evidence and there is too little time to actually follow up on recommendations and complete the PDCA. Of course, this must and can be done differently. A risk-driven approach sets priorities and enables accountability. This also promotes the independence of the internal audit department. With self-made control risk self-assessments (CRSA), which are important tools for the auditor, the organisation is really involved, and risk awareness is increased.

Strategic Risk Analysis as Basic Audit Planning

By linking goals, processes, risks, controls and audits, audits become an integral part of management and therefore also relevant for the organization. With NARIS Next you facilitate, administer and monitor the entire audit process – from targeting, setting up, data collection, analysis to findings, recommendations and reporting.

Self-Assessment Facilitates the First and Second Line

Through self-assessment, you find out whether your core processes are in control and whether the measures (processes) have been designed effectively. In order to collect evidence, you can easily use NARIS Next to periodically send out questionnaires or checklists within your organisation. This leaves more time for data analysis and puts the focus more on those organisational units that are less in control.

Build or Import a Control Framework

Save time on the set-up and design of your audit by using standard templates in NARIS Next based on standards (e.g. ISO31000, 27001/27002/90001, NEST), frameworks (NOREA) and laws and regulations (GDPR, BIO). With NARIS Next, you link up with what other organisations have already worked out and you can focus on making controls specific.
