Why Have A Continuous Audit Framework
by Leica Ison
Product growth requires product leaders to constantly monitor and fine-tune their action plans based on data and customer feedback. Continuous monitor, review and optimisation in audit framework ensure product managers can make timely adjustments as regulation changes and product life spans become shorter.
Product management now has a significant role to play in not just the business's revenue growth but also in product lifecycle oversight. It is relevant to all companies seeking to weave product governance and risk management effectively into digital product management framework.
According to Gartner insights, the majority of CEOs (63%) expect to change business models in the next two years. Boards, c-suite and product managers are required rethink product oversight to ensure their products are designed, distributed and consumed appropriately. A sound product monitoring and risk management system improves a business's ability to :
- Routinely identify risks faced at product and customer level,
- Rigorously evaluate the risk impacts and understand root-cause
- Communicate the risks and
- Address the risks with mitigation action plans.
Businesses that don't have a pragmatic product lifecycle oversight in the digital era are likely to fail and worse still – significantly erode customer trust and brand reputation.
