Best Practices

Whether you are charting the strategic direction of a business unit, ensuring regulatory compliance, transforming operations or optimizing sourcing models, there are a wealth of best practices that can be leveraged to assess the current state, structure transformation efforts and implement a continuous improvement lifecycle.

Many industry best practices have been developed by formal standards bodies as components of comprehensive methods and processes (IT Infrastructure Library® or ITIL®, Control Objectives for Information Technology or CobIT etc). Others result from innovative auditing efforts to increase the coverage and adherence of controls across inadequately funded compliance organizations. Still others result from innovative sourcing advisory efforts to reduce discovery, assessment and analysis costs or organizational impact during strategic sourcing engagements.

Bottom line: The most common and fundamental element of best practice frameworks as well as regulatory requirements is 'control'. The Control Origins team can ensure that controls are pervasive across business units and are integrated and optimized throughout an organization's policies, procedures, standards and control frameworks.
