Value-Added Quality Audits | REGL.X407

In today's dynamic business environment, every aspect of an organization needs to perform value-added activities that have a positive impact on the bottom line. Regulatory and quality units in more and more biomedical industry corporations are relying on quality audits as a means to improve operations.

This hands-on course introduces participants to fundamental auditing principles and techniques including planning, conducting, analyzing, and communicating audit results in terms that are meaningful to senior managers. By understanding the psychology of audits and practicing questioning techniques, participants will take their organization's quality audit program to another level.
