Ramaley Group, LLC was founded in 2012 and is dedicated to helping auditors and risk managers provide increased risk coverage with fewer resources.
Auditing is fundamentally accomplished using the same tools and methods that helped Noah confirm the animals on the Ark! Today’s auditors face new risks and increased pressure (internally and externally) to provide better coverage, faster.
Ramaley Group provides innovative, comprehensive training and coaching services to enable auditors to use appropriate tools to quantitatively assess and test both traditional and emerging risks. Tools and techniques are appropriated from diverse disciplines, including Lean, Six Sigma, and Game Theory, and are tailored for effective use during audit and risk assurance activities.

He has worked to expand audit capabilities across industries in order to provide enhanced assurance with streamlined resource models.
