Workshop content

The workshop uncovers some of the reasons why corrupt conduct continues to occur despite considerable efforts to prevent it. The workshop will assist executives and senior managers to make fuller use of the control inherent in well-designed and managed operational arrangements. This engaging workshop is underpinned by sound theoretical frameworks and includes case studies and practical activities.

The topics normally included in a full day workshop are:

  • the key elements of the control environment
  • the control inherent in tight operational arrangements
  • the role of incentives in motivating and preventing corruption
  • the effects of equity, entitlement and group culture on corruption
  • the impacts of organisational structures and boundaries on opportunities for corruption
  • process design, measurement and management
  • information integrity, decision location and accountability.


This course can also be delivered on-site at your organisation.
