This hands-on session offers the knowledge and skills necessary to reduce losses in your organization on major projects, such as infrastructure construction or a system implementation. Companies have been bankrupted by major projects gone wrong, corrupt relationships between purchasing personnel and vendors have led to disastrous shortcuts in delivery, and unethical vendors understand how to circumvent your bidding and payment processes.

 

This hands-on session offers the tools necessary to detect these problems early. Building off of Detecting Fraud Using Data Analysis; we dive deeper into a specific process and add to our repertoire of data analysis techniques.

Through hands-on instruction, taught at an optimal learning pace, attendees will learn how to:

  • Understand Our Role in Fraud Detection:
    • Mindsets that keep people from detecting fraud
    • A five-step approach to fraud detection
  • Recognize What Can Go Wrong in Capital Projects:
    • How to detect fraud within each of the seven major project phases
    • Sound methods for auditing & monitoring large contracts and major vendors
  • Apply Data Analysis Techniques to Case Studies:
    • Building logical extractions to target symptoms of problems; identifying curious patterns; practical analyses for detecting violations of statistical laws
    • Major project fraud cases worth knowing, how to analyze them, and how to build an effective ‘pre-mortem’ testing plan to avoid the same problems
