5 Tips to make your auditing process a success

  1. Be precise– Loosely phrased questions or requests can cause a lot of confusion. Strive to convey exactly what you need in all your communication with your employees.
  2. Be prepared– Don't waste people's time getting details you should already know.
  3. Be determined, decisive and direct– You can't get away with presenting incomplete information or delaying the proceedings unnecessarily.
  4. Get on with the job– Avoid spending a lot of time in unnecessary or irrelevant conversations.
  5. Be fair–Be fair how you approach the different departments you're auditing. Personal likes or dislikes or prejudices aren't allowed to influence your investigations. If you're biased, you will lose people's confidence and trust.
