  1. Most auditing just focus on compliance only but no value added to an organization. CB auditor focus on standard compliance, internal auditor focus on meet CB’s auditor requests. That’s what I saw in my past 8 years business consultant career.
    In my mind, all auditing activities must create some real value for organization, otherwise it just make one more waste.

    • Hi Robert:

      You are right. Quality auditing seems to be in compliance mode. Yes/no Binary. Value add is required.

      if you still audit, think of purchasing Value Added Auditing book. We’d like to hear your thoughts.

      Thanks for your kind words.
