Workshop Descriptions:

Day 1 - Auditthink: New Thinking Strategies for the Future of Audit

This workshop is designed especially for audit professionals and teaches the development of powerful, higher-order critical thinking skills.  Dr. Groves uses the very latest cognitive research related to auditing to teach reasoning processes that are most effective for accurate interpretation, better prioritization and smarter decision-making during the audit process.  The session is highly interactive and takes a holistic approach, helping auditors achieve a much deeper self-awareness of their reasoning processes.  This awareness provides a clarity of their thinking that allows them to examine the effectiveness of their approach and how to adapt it under changing circumstances. 

Day 2 - Thinking Beyond Patterns: Finding Meaning in Your Data

New technologies and analytical methods detect myriad patterns in our data, but what do they really mean and what decisions can they help us make? Is the underlying data reliable? Is it valid for the purpose you are using it? Cognitive technologies distance us from the context of our data, shrouding the meaning behind the patterns and how to apply the information for effective decision-making. New thinking approaches are required to move beyond simple recognition of correlations to insight into why relationships exist. This session will teach methods that give us the ability to discern the inner character of problems, to recognize why interactions occur, and what decisions can be made with the information.
