This workshop is designed especially for audit professionals 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.
