Compliance has a problem

The compliance landscape is changing. Obligations are expanding to include both mandatory and voluntary commitments, environmental, social and governance (ESG) obligations. Regulations are also becoming risk-based changing from rule to goal oriented designs.

In this new climate, many organizations find that they are uncertain of their obligations or if their compliance efforts are effective. They do not know if they are able to keep all their stakeholder promises.

In fact, over 70% of organizations don't even measure the effectiveness of their risk & compliance programs. They are doing what they can and hoping for the best.  As we know, hope is a wonderful thing but is a poor strategy against risk.


Why is compliance not improving?

Based on our experience working with hundreds of organizations we observed that many take a silo-ed and reactive approach to compliance.


They wait until they have been audited or for a serious incident to occur before they improve their compliance.

As a result, over time their risk increase, objectives are not met, and they lose the trust of their stakeholders.  Some may even lose their business or mission.


We call this The Reactive Uncertainty Trap™.


How can you escape the trap?

However, if you take a proactive and holistic approach you can escape this trap and achieve a much better outcome.​ 


You can lower your risk, advance your objectives, and enhance the trust of your stakeholders. All of which increases the probability of mission success.

That’s why we recommend you do three things:

  1. Take ownership of all your obligations (don't wait for an auditor to tell you what to do).

  2. Identify meaningful obligation goals and objectives.

  3. Establish measures to increase the certainty that you meet your obligations.


How does Lean Compliance help?

To help you keep all your promises we offer two choices: basic and advanced.


For the basic, we can provide you with compliance consulting services. Of course, you can get the basic from many other consultants. 

However, the advanced program we created – The Proactive Certainty Program™ – takes everything to a much higher level and is only available from us.


It's important to point out that you don't need to give up any existing consultants to join the advanced program.

This advanced program is not for everyone. It's for ethical and ambitious organizations who are future-oriented and strive to always improve their performance.

If this sounds like your organization you may want to consider joining this advanced program.

If keeping all your promises is important to you
