Conference Description:

Accurate
Objective
Clear
Concise
Constructive

Timely
In addition to audit reports, these elements can apply to all kinds of writings including:

Memos
General correspondence

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

The objective of any report is to provide important information to management in the area reviewed. It represents the end result of weeks of reviews, analyses, interviews and discussions. The quality of that report will have an impact on how well the report is understood and accepted. A report with the best information and recommendations may not be acted upon if the report is poorly written and hard to understand. Poor quality reports can result in management:

Misunderstanding the information and making the wrong decisions
Getting too little information and making poor decisions
Getting too much information and wasting valuable time in making decisions
Ideally, the audit report should provide management with enough information to understand:

What was done
What was found
What management should do
