Management audit is used for the evaluation of the upper and top management levels. It is a useful tool for companies wanting to get a clearer picture of what is really going on within their organization.
Organizations with diverse, inclusive leadership teams consistently attract the best talent, deliver superior customer experiences, and outperform the competition.
We were asked to appraise the senior management team of the largest division of a complex, formerly public sector but recently privatised national logistics business. Our remit was threefold:
Our audit team devised, designed and delivered individual programmes to provide the project sponsors with an objective appraisal of every member of the management group. Our views were formed and reported through the analysis of evidence-based assessment, the application of our collective managerial experience and our extensive market and functional knowledge.
It was vital that the assessment process was non-threatening and enjoyable. Each participant completed the process feeling positive, having learned more about themselves, their strengths, and their specific role and contribution to the business. They were also clear about (and comfortable with) the areas identified for further personal development, and confident that progress made in such areas would directly influence their future success and remuneration.
