LENGTH: One Hour
One of the techniques used by financial auditors to detect shifts in accounting transaction patterns is distribution analysis. It involves comparing the distribution for one period of time to an expected distribution, with differences indicating a change that may highlight a potential risk.
This same concept can be applied to internal quality audits. Doing so may allow auditors to predict where and/or when an audit can be done at the normal level of depth, versus when a deeper dive is warranted.
This webinar will demonstrate the concept of distribution analysis as a component to consider including within the quality audit process. Different approaches for conducting the analysis will also be presented.
- What is distribution analysis
