Broadleaf is developing a series of tutorials on aspects of controls, control design and control assurance. The first three were published in December; the fourth is in preparation; we hope to make it available next month. The fifth tutorial, published this month, discusses how to develop an assurance program.
This tutorial is for directors and managers who need assurance that critical controls are in place and working, and that they will work in the future if they are needed. To be effective, assurance must be a planned and deliberate activity. This tutorial discusses how to develop an assurance plan that is appropriate for your organisation.
