Audit Program Managers

We know audit program managers struggle to resource and develop risk-based auditors and engage leadership, yet internal auditing is a mandatory requirement for achieving and maintaining your ISO certification.

Your ineffective auditors waste precious resources, disrupt operations, create chaos and undermine overall credibility.

The guide “What are essential auditor skills?” helps audit program managers identify:

  • Persons suitable to train as management system auditors and
  • Generic skills to mentor or further develop with existing auditors to enhance their effectiveness.

The guide also helps internal auditors better understand expectations of their generic skills while auditing. With this awareness, they can focus their efforts to use or polish their skills for more effective audits.

We invite you to download this guide and include it as a resource in your audit program. Use it to give feedback to your current or potential internal auditors.

🙟 Are you thinking of volunteering for the role to contribute your talents?

  • How to effectively communicate with auditees.

The guide also helps you better understand expectations of the essential skills while auditing. With this awareness, you can focus your efforts to use or polish your skills for more effective audits.

Download our guide and checklist and do a self-assessment. Ask others for their perception of you. See if their feedback aligns with your self-assessment.

Use this baseline assessment to leverage your strengths, seek mentoring or coaching to enhance your generic skills, or team up with auditors who have complimentary skills.

This guide is the second of a series reviewing the soft skills, generic skills , and knowledge that ISO management systems auditors need to be effective.
