The effective management of risk and the use of well-designed control systems are essential elements in ensuring that any organisation meets its business objectives. Control self assessment (CSA) is one of the most topical and controversial of such management techniques. It requires commitment from managers and staff at all levels to the regular and open review, through a formalised documented process, of the effectiveness of the control systems designed to guard against critical risks within each individual's sphere of influence. Control Self Assessment, written by leading practitioners in the field, outlines the nature and development of control self assessment and explains in practical terms the various techniques for its implementation. It includes case studies from practitioners in a wide variety of organisations, both in the private and public sectors, who recount their own experiences of implementation. The book concludes with a view of the future of CSA.
From the Publisher:
'Control self assessment is sweeping the management and auditing worlds by storm. At last we have in just one place the authoritative guide to its practical application. Until now CSA had been shrouded in too much mystery and would-be practitioners had been largely at the expensive mercies of consultants or their own trial and error. It is impressive that the editors of this substantial volume have persuaded so many leading practitioners from most sectors and from several countries to pool their immense practical experience of CSA in a highly accessible way.' Andrew Chambers, Managing Director of Management Audit, Emeritus Professor City University London and former Chief Executive of City Business School 'This book should provide a very useful reference point for anyone who is thinking about introducing CRSA, or who is in the early stages of implementing it. The sections covering experiences of implementing CRSA....are likely to be particularly useful. They should give you help in selecting the right approach and the most appropriate techniques for your own organisation.' Liam Fitzpatrick, Director, Oxley Fitzpatrick & Associates Ltd Control Self Assessment is 'a formalised, documented and committed approach to the regular, fundamental and open review by managers and staff of the strength of control systems designed and operated to achieve business objectives and guard against critical risks within their sphere of influence' (Keith Wade). This book gives practical guidance on how such techniques may be introduced in an organisation and describes the implementation of CSA in a variety of organisations both in the private and public sectors.Control self assessment is currently one of the most topical and controversial audit and management issues. Control self assessment is a technique whereby managers and staff systematically assess the controls within their areas of responsibility to determine the extent to which they succeed in contributing to the achievement of business objectives as well as guarding against operational risks. This management technique plays a significant role and has been implemented in many organizations; others are looking for practical guidance on its form, application, and operation.
