Latest from Broadleaf
Broadleaf is developing a series of tutorials on aspects of controls, control design and control assurance. The first three are published this month. The fourth and fifth are in preparation; we hope to make them available in early 2019.
This tutorial is for managers who need assurance that critical controls are in place and working, and that they will work in the future if they are needed. The approach described here will be useful for risk owners, for the key controls associated with their risks; for control owners, for the controls for which they are accountable; and for those managers who conduct assurance activities.
