Summary: This important and timely book offers a way of improving the value of control and risk management by bringing creativity and design skills to the fore. It provides an arsenal of 60 high performance control mechanisms, including several alternative ways to design controls and control systems, controls for monitoring and audit, controls for accelerated learning, and techniques for finding and recovering cash.This design material is combined with insights into the psychology of risk control, strategies for encouraging helpful behaviour and enabling change, and a surprisingly simple integration of
