Control transformation

Confidence through streamlining complexity

Control transformation

The pressure to do more with less, increasingly competitive landscapes and changing operational environments can drive the need for organisational efficiency.

In this environment, boards and CEO’s are under pressure to generate improved margins and run reduced cost programs, whilst CFOs and audit committees face pressure to maintain appropriate controls. 

Many organisations don’t know where to focus their controls and can fail to establish appropriate processes to fit their business requirements:

  • Too many controls bury a business in red tape, bureaucracy and leads to wasted effort
  • Too few results in significant risk, including brand, margin and critical asset damage.

However, an organisation cannot create controls to protect against everything that could go wrong. Building a control environment like this sets up an organisation to rely on more manual, time and cost intensive processes. This can reduce agility and competitiveness, by focussing on out of date risks that may not foresee the key business risks senior management need for planning.

Our risk, control and technology specialists work with our clients to ensure they have the right controls, understand the impact of their actions and can rely on those controls to manage the risks they take; creating a control environment that is efficient, effective and fit for purpose.
