Manual Controls, the “Elephant in the Room” in ICFR Transformation

We had a great session with our special guest, Stuart Worthington, former Internal Controls Manager at Nestle, the world’s largest food company.

Manual controls are a critical problem at the core of risk management and controls transformation. Despite huge investments in digitization, this isn’t going away.

– 69% of major corporations have had one or more significant audit deficiencies in the last 2 years.

– 93% have under 50% of their key financial controls automated, with 46% under 10%.

– 62% identify manual process controls as their biggest single, current concern.

You can view the recording where will explore the root causes of manual control proliferation, and share practical guidance on how to eliminate, automate, augment and accelerate ICFR transformation into the digital world.
