Control Self-Assessment is a powerful audit and consulting tool that can be organized to protect against Business Risks or used as the central tool in a Business Process Analysis. In this first comprehensive introduction to CSA methodology, Richard Tritter explains how to successfully use CSA sessions to get a realistic look at the machinery of your business with information known to its day-to-day operational staff. He goes on to show you how to use this information to develop an action plan that will be enthusiastically put into practice. Control Self-Assessment is a must for any firm in which CEOs and staff share a common vision built on their collective wisdom.
