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 AQ1
extension 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
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.
