MasterControl's On-Site Audit Workshop Helps Quality Professionals Develop the Skills of a Superb Auditor

Most highly regulated organizations do not have the luxury of hiring well-seasoned professional auditors; they must develop auditors from within. The MasterControl quality management on-site audit workshop was developed to teach quality professionals who have been tasked with assessing conformance how to act in the role of internal auditor or supplier quality auditor. Delivered over two rigorous days at the customer's facility, participants gain valuable insight into pertinent regulatory requirements, as well as a keen understanding of the necessary planning, performance, and post-audit remediation techniques. The quality management audit workshop incorporates a proven methodology to teach critical thinking skills that will help any quality professional deploy and follow a best-practice audit system.

The MasterControl Audit Workshop Helps Participants Avoid These Common Audit Pains

Most quality professionals are asked to perform auditing functions at their organizations in addition to juggling several other job tasks. This added responsibility often causes stress, and can result in reduced work performance. The quality management audit workshop was developed to help minimize the anxiety and uncertainty associated with conducting audits, and to give quality professionals the knowledge and skills they need to address even the most challenging audit pains with confidence. Pains such as:

  • No uniform, solid method for audit preparation and execution
  • Audit processes that don't meet regulatory (e.g. FDA, EMA) standards or expectations
  • Ineffective processes to utilize with personnel when interviewing
  • Ineffective decision making and coaching within the audit process
  • Poorly written findings that are difficult to interpret
  • Misunderstanding of audit roles and responsibilities
  • Inappropriate behavior when communicating
  • Selection of inappropriate team members

The audit workshop is taught using a blended approach of classroom and real-life application. This "how-to" approach significantly increases knowledge retention and allows participants to apply the skills as they learn in a dynamic setting. Click to review the workshop agenda or to register.
