It is impressive that the editors of this substantial volume have persuaded so many leading practitioners from most sectors and from several countries to pool their immense practical experience of CSA in a highly accessible way.a Andrew Chambers, Managing Director of Management Audit, Emeritus Professor City University London and former Chief Executive of City Business School a This book should provide a very useful reference point for anyone who is thinking about introducing CRSA, or who is in the early stages of implementing it.

They should give you help in selecting the right approach and the most appropriate techniques for your own organisation.a
