Description

In today’s global economy, with more pressure on compliance, cost management and continuity planning, business management control has taken on far more importance to executives the world over. However, while there are many books available that focus on specific controls (financial, quality, production) few contain an integrated set of controls that apply across an entire business.


A practical guide to Business Management Controls


Business Management Controls is arranged by functional business area. It is aimed at managers, auditors and professionals who want to know how the assets, transactions, operations, systems activities and investments of their organisation may be protected, controlled and improved more effectively and more efficiently.

This book will help you to improve your business control practices and show you how to better create, implement and assess your own controls. It will also show you how to develop more streamlined and successful working practices, and how to enable, facilitate and protect your business operations in a more effective way. As an addition, this book describes the various types of controls in all core business functions and outlines several frameworks (including BSC) for designing and implementing those controls.

  • Part A describes the internal controls environment and the establishment of its major components.
  • Part B outlines the main types of strategic and operational controls, including financial, sales, production, IT governance, data management, business intelligence and corporate espionage.
  • Parts C looks at implementing these controls, and also discusses the role and approach of managers in protecting their company against various threats, while at the same time allowing it to achieve its core objectives.
  • Part D includes some illustrative case studies and suggests some additional areas where controls may enhance business operations, including business and IT continuity.

A selection of illustrative case studies, together with some key recommendations throughout the book, offer the reader further help and guidance on applying these controls within their own business, regardless of its size.

Reviews

"…easy to understand and at the same time rigorous… I have never seen such a comprehensive, yet easy to understand book of this nature. I intend for this to be mandatory reading for my students, and it should be for anyone with internal control design responsibility or oversight. I highly recommend this practical book."
