Corporate Fraud: A Manager’s Journey

Bill Reynolds was just starting to relax. He’d engineered a momentous implementation of internal controls and enterprise risk management systems within his company, making an indelible mark upon his organization. Now, coming off the heels of his father’s death, his CEO tells him to take as much time as he needs to grieve…and when he returns, to please sort out the company’s anti-fraud measures. Bill and his colleague, Jack, are fairly confident they can handle this new challenge, but quickly discover they don’t know what they are up against.

Engagingly written by renowned internal auditing expert K. H. Spencer Pickett, Corporate Fraud picks up where its predecessors Internal Control and Enterprise Risk Management left off. This entertaining third part of the A Manager’s Journey series continue to follow Bill as he equips his organization—very much behind on fraud prevention—to get their new fraud policy up and running. Through Bill’s latest journey, auditors will discover how to manage the risk of fraud at work as a basic management skill and review their company’s internal controls in order to meet the requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley, along with public sector regulations.

Corporate Fraud: A Manager’s Journey covers tough topics in an entertaining narrative, including how to:

  • Make sure your people are able to understand the serious, costly, and growing problem of fraud for business and government
  • Establish good anti-fraud procedures through real-world application
  • Build a good understanding of internal controls, whistleblowing, and Sarbanes-Oxley
  • Deal with fraud at work, showing how the theory of prevention and detection may be translated into real, everyday work
  • Encourage sound internal controls across your entire workforce

In addition to the unique and engaging narrative, the book also includes case studies, a set of standards, and helpful advice that can be adapted and adopted by a variety of organizations to help you develop a dynamic fraud risk management process. A must-read for CFOs, CEOs, auditors, controllers, and operations managers, Corporate Fraud sheds light on the combination of timing, teamwork, and vision necessary to understand fraud and prevent it from happening in the first place.
