About the Playbooks

GRC Playbook leverages the familiar Excel interface and is easy to use and quick to learn. It runs on top of Microsoft Excel, which most of us use every single day. GRC Playbook has been designed with efficiency and ease of use at its core.

Our growing library of “Playbooks” – pre-populated Excel-based control, compliance, and profitability assessment templates are designed to automate and enhance the assessment and documentation process with minimal training, cost, and setup time.

GRC Playbook is designed to provide you with the flexible option to perform a scaled assessment of the subject area to suit your particular objective in performing the assessment:

1) a simple ControlSCAN (Gap Analysis against good practice),
2) a more in-depth DiagnosticREVIEW, or
3) a full-scale Risk and Control Matrix (RCM) Assessment (based on authoritative or regulatory framework requirements e.g., COSO 2013 and other international standards)
