Technology adoption and advancements in business operations and increasing use of data analytics/ visualization are paving the way for audit functions to re-imagine the way in which audits are planned and executed. A transformed audit model includes analytics beyond sample-based testing to include full population analyses of audit-relevant data. Analytics enables greater assurance in identifying and sizing business risks, provides necessary audit evidence and enables auditors to offer deeper, relevant and actionable insights to business stakeholders. How are audit departments leveraging analytics? Are audit departments rating analytics as valuable in achieving their objectives? What analytics tools are most commonly used? What skills should auditors of the future consider adopting to grow and align with such a transforming model? Join us to discuss these and share your perspective or approach on this important topic at this section meeting.
The term “quality professional” has been around for well over 100 years, and like the industries this function serves, the meaning and skill sets continually evolve to suit the needs of industry. Our profession is rapidly changing and the competencies required are no longer within a single discipline, but rather found in multiple disciplines ranging from traditional quality tools to ethics and IT. This presentation will discuss the core competencies and responsibilities of the modern quality professional, and why a diversified skill set is now more important than ever. Embark on your journey of change now, or risk being left behind wondering why job opportunities and career growth are limited.

Business Process Improvement, a core business function at BlueLine Associates, involves the evaluation of current practices, which is done through a thorough analysis of people, process and technology. The review provides solutions that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization based on agreed critical success factors.
Our client wanted to conduct a complete process review across all business functions to identify opportunities to improve cost and quality. We performed an end-to-end process review to provide a holistic view of the company and implemented recommendations that achieve over $7m in operational efficiency while increasing employee satisfaction and engagement.

Founded in 1976, the New York Transit Museum is dedicated to telling and preserving the stories of mass transportation – extraordinary engineering feats, workers who labored in the tunnels over 100 years ago, communities that were drastically transformed, and the ever-evolving technology, design, and ridership of a system that runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year. This bears on and helps understand the state of quality and challenges it faced in those days.
