3 keys paved the way for successful audits
Audits can be challenging. However, by being an active participant and engaging in the process, you stand a good chance to have a smooth audit.
Three keys paved the way toward Larix facilitating a successful and smooth audit – offering more value and limiting adjustments.
- An engaged team
Everyone on the team is set up for success by managing expectations, communicating requests and assigning work appropriately. There´s a buy-in from the team completing the work since the accountability is clear to everyone.
- Solid preparation
We clarify the requests before we start work. We don´t assume. We understand what is being requested. We confirm we understand if we´re unsure. And we´re not afraid to ask how something is applicable.
- Being in control of our processes
Perhaps it goes without saying but knowing and being in control of the processes is vital. Having all internal procedures in place is a great start to demonstrate the current internal control structure. As is having the supporting material and documentation. When a team is in control of this and communicates in the same way, it builds trust with the auditor.
We´ve had an intense period of audits during the autumn at Larix. And this has led to an even more efficient team that have come together to swiftly address the auditor´s requests adequately.
