Strategic Controls in the Workplace


This one day Seminar-Workshop was designed to discuss and illustrate various internal control measures that can be installed in any business in order to prevent or minimize theft, pilferage, misappropriation and similar deviations to standard policies and practices. Actual stories of fraud in the workplace will be discussed to highlight its impact on the business operations. A mini-case study will allow participants to brain storm issues identified in the problem set and find the right solution to eliminate or minimize the continuity of the practice . The Seminar-Workshop will be highlighted by a group work where a chosen case of one group will be tacked by another group . The group is expected to do hands on application of Internal control strategies to resolve identified weaknesses of the case.
