By Randall E. Lasalle on July 25, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The old accountants' adage, "If accountants don't measure it, it won't get managed" is especially true for the cost and risk of fraud and misconduct. There is no line item on the Income Statement or the Balance Sheet that directly measures fraud or identifies exposure to the risk of fraud. Hence, the costs (and risks) of fraud often don't get the managerial attention it deserves. Somewhere, perhaps buried in the cost of goods sold, other expenses, lays the cost of fraud - hidden from view, but nevertheless as real as production, marketing and administrative costs. Managers spend significant amount of time managing these other costs and revenues. Furthermore, MBA (and MPA) programs devote significant educational resources toward these other costs and revenues as well. I am pleased that managing the cost and risk of fraud is finally getting some attention.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives

About fifteen years ago, Joe Wells (founder of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners) commented about how few books there were on white-collar crime. He said, "Not only can we get all of the white-collar crime books in the library (one small room), we can get a 10-year supply of National Geographic in here, too." Since that time there has been plethora of fraud- and white-collar crime-related books. Accountants have written books offering useful perspectives on managing the risk of fraud and misconduct. Sociologists and criminologists were among the first to write about white-collar crime. Lawyers also have useful perspectives, and law enforcement personnel, including former IRS agents, have contributed to our knowledge as well. Each of these books has made valuable contributions toward our understanding and has offered practical advice on managing fraud-related risks.

As an accounting professor, I started reading this book with the expectation that it would be geared toward auditing students and would focus on the usual concepts of internal controls. As I got further into the book, I began to realize that this book is much more than a text for future auditors and that it is intended for a MUCH BROADER audience. In addition to accounting students, I think that "Managing the Risk of Fraud and Misconduct" should be required reading for all of our MBA students.

As useful as this book will be for business students, the readers who will reap the greatest immediate benefit from this book are business owners and managers who believe that their business is too small or too provincial to be concerned with "big company" issues like money laundering, government procurement fraud, and management of electronically-stored information. Many of these readers will find this book to be a real eye opener as they learn that their businesses are exposed to risks of which they were completely unaware.

Ok book but a little boring. I hope they make it more exciting and engaging in the next version.

The book is overall dry and the content can be better learned through power point slides rather than reading the book. It's an Ok reference.
