Analyze and advise organizations effectively and efficiently with the Business Process Control program

As a business process and risk manager, you serve as a sparring partner to an increasing range of people. To do this effectively, it is important to be capable of identifying different types of organizations quickly and performing a structured analysis. That way, you can provide useful advice. After all, once you know why a company exists and how it makes its money, you also know where the greatest value is to be found. And, more often than not, the greatest risks. The Advanced Program for Business Process Control teaches you the skills and knowledge required to quickly perform such analyses. Once you know how the primary controls are or should be set up, you also know where scarce auditing capacity can be used most effectively.

  • You’re able to perform a comprehensive, structured analysis of organizations and an assessment of relevant risks in their internal controls.
  • You can draw up a detailed design for administrative information provision within an organization.
  • You’re familiar with the process and operational risks in IT after analyzing the IT landscape.
  • You can assess to what extent an integrated design for administrative information provision and IT’s role in this are suitable for (internal) audits.
  • You’re able to provide purposeful descriptions and presentations of analyses and administrative structures.
  • You’re a worthy sparring partner for senior management in the area of business process control.

Program design Advanced Program for Business Process Control

The Advanced Program for Business Process Control teaches you how to effectively and efficiently analyze various businesses and organizations. Once you have finished this program, you can identify an organization’s issues using top-down analysis. Discover how to break down processes and identify the risks contained in those process steps. And how to use this information to propose control objectives. Thanks to the knowledge you have gained, you can assess internal risk control systems and rapidly comprehend an organization’s primary processes and controls.

Focus on automated business processes

This program focuses mainly on the design and control of (extensively) automated business processes at data-driven organizations. That means you will learn to analyze the IT landscape. Which systems are there and how are they related? Does the business make its own products, or only trade in them? Which operational and control risks does data storage involve?

Practice-driven learning

Besides theoretical explanations, the program also spends plenty of time on cases – with extensive input from participants. These cases focus on setting up effective governance, controls and accountability for an internal organization. Every case also considers ICT’s impact on the design of the administrative organization and internal controls (AO/IC). This includes special attention to factors such as controllability, reliability, justifiability and confidentiality.
