This is when an auditor does an actual review of the processes and the security of these processes and makes “professional recommendations” on the implementation of systems, the security of the systems and software, and even recommendations on better implementation of the database management. SAS 70 is important for all processes, electronic and manual, that may be outsourced to third party companies or may be maintained by third party software. This report provides the company as well as the third parties with a report that provides information on the internal controls that are in place and their effectiveness within both businesses. This allows the organizations to determine whether or not they need to make changes to their processes to ensure the security of the data that is being shared between parties (Hunton, 2004, p. 217). Finally, SAS 94 addresses the need for the auditor, and its firm, to fully understand the programming and technology that is being used for any given company.
Therefore when making a change to the any of the parts, a strategic leader must be thinking through all the possible “systemic” effects of that change and at the same time it is important that he subsystems all have consistent goal alignment. The boundary of the system defines what becomes the internal as well as external factors of the overall system and how it might impact the behavior of the overall system. Every system is made up of inputs and outputs, processes and outcomes. The system is continuously making adjustments based on the feedback from these various parts to achieve a specific outcome. Inputs are broken down into three general categories: Primary resources (what we have at our disposal), external (what pressures do we have from vendors, materials and value streams), markets (competition, economics and social/culture).
Name: Vinay Bansal Balance scorecard Definition A balance scorecard is a strategic planning and management system that is used to arrange and align the various business activities with the vision statement of an organization. In some cases, a Balanced Scorecard also attempts to translate the sometimes indefinite, moral hopes of a company's vision/mission statement into the practicalities of managing the business in a better way at every level. A Balanced Scorecard approach takes a broader view of an organization and interrelate the processes so that the efficiencies are experienced by all departments and in a joined-up fashion. To embark on the Balanced Scorecard path a company first must know and understand the following: * The company's mission statement * The company's strategic plan/vision Then: * The financial status of the organization * How the organization is currently structured and operating * The level of expertise of their employees * Customer satisfaction level Origin of Balance scorecard Balanced Scorecard has been launched about twenty years ago as a first set of principles for balanced strategic Objectives and Measures/KPIs setting and measurement. The “parents” of Balanced Scorecard are Dr. Robert S. Kaplan, Baker Foundation Professor at Harvard Business School and Dr. David P. Norton, the founder of the consulting team that contributed over the past two decades to the development of Balanced Scorecard into today’s integrated and aligned management system.
