Acceptance of novel formal methods-based approaches by businesses depends on involvement of the existing (not imaginary) business roles in the process of their application. This paper presents an AQ1extension of frameworks for auditing with process mining with a series of participatory workshops involving three business roles: Business Expert, Audit Expert and IT specialist. Such workshops produce the necessary input to apply frameworks of auditing with process mining: normative business process, audit statements in a controlled natural language and the logs needed for mining of process instances that do not conform audit statements. The proposed extension of frameworks for auditing with process mining has been tested with two case studies of processes in different domains. The case studies show the need of participatory workshops, the percentage of possible audit automation, the advantages of using workshops and possible difficulties, and the types of artifacts needed to apply process mining for audit in organizations. The presented results
can be used for expectation management of the businesses attempting an application of auditing with process mining.
