Tip: Using questionnaires
Healthcare Auditing Weekly, March 11, 2008
To obtain information about the risks facing your organization ask department managers and staff to fill out risk questionnaires. A comprehensive questionnaire process that involves knowledgeable and experienced management from various levels of the organization provides excellent insight into potential business vulnerabilities.
The power of using the risk questionnaire approach is that the risks are identified by those who know the organization best. When all the answers from management are aggregated, they paint a solid picture of management's perspective about the organization and those areas that may need attention.
