What is a Management Audit?
A management audit is a systematic approach to analyze the effectiveness of the management systems of an organization. This includes evaluation of implemented policies, protocols and procedures to carry out corporate objectives and uphold business and safety standards. Management audits are not used to appraise individual executive performance.
Why Perform a Management Audit?
A well implemented and adopted management system can empower a management team to work and communicate effectively, minimize risk, lower worker dissatisfaction and reduce wastage.
Key benefits of performing a management audit can serve to improve:
- Identify strong and weak points of the management system;
- Improve communication protocols;
- Minimize cost of production by eliminating wastage;
- Utilize manpower efficiently;
- Improve safety and compliance standards;
- Identify defects and irregularities from the administration; and
- Determine better solutions to achieve the desired goals.
