/EINPresswire.com/ 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.
Business Management Controls is a practical guide and reference, arranged by functional business area. It is written for 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.
Recently published, the book has already received praise. Associate Professor Richard LeBlanc enthuses:
“John Kyriazoglou’s Business Management Controls: A Guide is easy to understand and at the same time rigorous. It is mandatory reading for the chief audit executive, internal control personnel, general counsel, assurance provider, external auditor, and, perhaps most importantly, audit committee members and board directors. Controls apply to any company, in any sector. This book is well organized, covers all controls, and has many practical appendices, tools, cases and takeaways.”
He goes on to describe the book’s broad appeal, with its up-to-date advice on the hot areas of control management, “it is current and relevant, covering emerging issues such as social media, cybercrime, privacy, mobile devices, confidentiality, passwords, espionage, business continuity ... as well as all traditional business and stakeholder processes and controls, including excellent chapters on fraud case studies and human behavior “soft” controls. The checklists and frameworks cover inception, design, all the way to control implementation and follow up.”
Professor LeBlanc concluded, “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.”
Take control of your business processes with this comprehensive new book.
