management audit

Popular Terms
A systematic assessment of methods and policies of an organization's management in the administration and the use of resources, tactical and strategic planning, and employee and organizational improvement.

The objectives of a management audit are to (1) establish the current level of effectiveness, (2) suggest improvements, and (3) lay down standards for future performance. Management auditors (employees of the company or independent consultants) do not appraise individual performance, but may critically evaluate the senior executives as a management team.
