Audit vs Inspection
Please help me to understand the difference between Audits and Inspections from the PMBOK's point of view.
I googled a lot but still do not understand the difference completely.
Here are the definitions from the PMBOK:
- An audit is a structured, independent process used to determine if project activities comply with organizational and project policies, processes, and procedures
- Inspection includes activities such as measuring, examining, and validating to determine whether work and deliverables meet requirements and product acceptance criteria
The only difference I see is that an audit is a more thorough process.
Thank you in advance!
