Anti-Bribery Quantitative Model. An approach based on pair-wise information System

pdf PDF


Organizations strives to develop a relevant anti-bribery management system to comply with mandatory rules. To achieve an efficient model, managers must get an equilibrium among a pure rule oriented organization and an organizing with some degree of freedom, that allows people to choose. The difficulty is how to develop and manage efficiently anti-bribery system in an organization without putting at risk its day by day operation. Managers are concerned how to balance between inflexible control and a flexible way of people work on organization. The purpose of this document is to introduce a decision-making way of defining a context to establish an anti-bribery risk management system in accordance with the best practices. To address this matter, we will support our work in a theoretical framework for the analysis of human work and introduce anti-bribery as non-functional requirement (generic qualities of services) of organization information systems.
