    Forensics Millikin professors new book covers the root of corporate problems You are here Home About Media Newsroom Managerial Forensics December 9 2015 at 9 30am Dane Lisser In today s business realm many organizations must be efficient and innovative in order to be successful However certain obstacles make it difficult for businesses to thrive and the end result could be bankruptcy What are the reasons behind business failures and how could they be prevented Millikin University faculty members Dr J Mark Munoz interim dean of the Tabor School of Business and Diana Heeb Bivona adjunct professor have tackled these subjects in their latest book titled Managerial Forensics Business Expert Press 2015 Managerial forensics is an approach to diagnosing framing and solving business problems The approach is used to gather historical corporate data for the purpose of analyzing and identifying reasons for management obstacles mismanagement bankruptcy and corporate demise Dr Munoz and Professor Bivona assembled leading academic and business experts to share their views on the best practices of corporate analysis The book offers strategies for corporate revival and turnaround The reason this is such an interesting area particularly when we talk about business failure is because this topic has been researched for decades Bivona said There s no consensus within this particular area to what the patterns or processes of failure are and when you start looking at the different components of a business you can narrow down the cause of the problem The concept of managerial forensics was first developed during a Tabor School of Business curriculum meeting Dr Munoz and Professor Bivona developed a course that would serve as a Performance Learning lab for understanding the complexity of business failures Millikin students would have the opportunity to understand the nature of business problems and practice strategies that are critical to identifying problematic business issues This led to the development of a model that would aid business managers in avoiding business failure Diana came up with the idea for Managerial Forensics as a possible course and I was very intrigued by the concept especially for a book topic Dr Munoz said We were fortunate to get a number of experts who shared case studies and their thoughts on the best practices in terms of the approach The book features insight from 15 different contributors on topics including forensic marketing forensic accounting corporate behavior international forensics and entrepreneurship forensics The book notes that the leading causes of business failure are largely a result of courses of action taken by an organization and its management Book contributor Colin Price chairman of Co Company highlighted the need to examine nine elements of organizational health direction leadership culture and climate accountability coordination and control capabilities motivation external orientation and innovation and learning Dr Munoz and Professor Bivona saw this process as the best opportunity to create management tools that will breathe new life into a failing business We wanted to create a toolkit that managers can use to take a scientific approach
