Layered Process Audits Training Online

Layered Process Audits (LPA) training helps the learner understand what LPAs are and how to use them. Participants will learn how to plan a comprehensive LPA program, develop a rollout strategy, conduct LPAs, make sure outcomes are assessed and the methodologies are continually improved. This course covers the steps for conducting an LPA while taking learners through examples that help bring the concepts to life.

Give your LPA team the tools they need

Layered Process Audits Training prepares people to serve on LPA teams. The course provides a foundation for conducting LPAs to assure that all those involved in the LPA have a common understanding of the process. If LPAs are just being implemented in your organization, this is a great way to get every “layer” of the organization using the same language and steps. It is also an excellent way to bring new members joining existing LPA teams up to speed quickly, efficiently and inexpensively.

Upon successful completion of this training, participants will have a solid comprehension of the purpose, objectives and benefits of LPAs and will be prepared to carry out the responsibilities of their role. They will know the purpose and process for each layer of the process audits.

What are Layered Process Audits?

LPAs are a unique technique designed to help improve organization-wide performance by engaging all levels or “layers” of the organization.  The LPA approach is a proven means to help align the entire organization on Key Performance Indicators, reinforce the responsibilities and accountabilities of all “layers” to meet those objectives and help identify opportunities to improve processes and their performance.

The term “Layered Process Audit” does not refer to a conventional internal audit but rather represents a technique that calls for short, focused audits performed by multiple levels (or layers) of the organization.  LPAs involve a wide range of people from the organization engaged in verifying the viability of selected processes, not a small team of internal auditors. This approach helps align the organizational “layers” into a continuum where all understand what is important to ensure outcomes are successful and that all members are committed to making it happen.
