While most entrepreneurs are searching for innovative solutions to improve firm performance and managers attempt to organise processes in the firm to optimize performance, there is always the threat that others misuse the opportunities provided by the firm in an illegal way. These problems can be caused both by people in and outside the firm. In practice the legal system and police protection do not fully protect firms against this threat. Additional measures by firms are required for which there is always a trade-off between the costs of these measures and the potential costs of fraud and crime. This skills training develops understanding of why the practices of a firm could provide incentives for criminal behaviour and what firms can do to reduce these problems. Based on cases problems of crime and fraud will be discussed while students in groups work on a plan to limit the costs of fraud and crime for a specific firm.
