For a quality management (QM) system to be successful, it needs achievable objectives and tailored processes in place to enable the performance of quality engagements. It also needs clearly articulated roles and responsibilities and the ability to identify, evaluate, and correct deficiencies.
The revised QM standards are designed to emphasize firm leadership’s responsibility for proactively managing quality, strengthening a firm’s monitoring and remediation processes, and advancing the ability of the firm to tailor its system of quality management to the nature and circumstances of the firm.
To succeed under these new standards, you’ll need to know how to set up a functioning QM system that will help your firm identify and address risks for its audit and assurance practice.
