Lean Compliance - Operational Compliance - Primer



In my years working within the compliance landscape, I've come to realize that it's not just about ticking boxes or adhering to regulations; it's about Care. Those dedicated to compliance genuinely care about the impact of their work, yet there's often a gap between that care and realizing the benefits from all their hard work.

This primer takes a step back from the technical nitty-gritty and regulatory complexities— there are plenty of experts and resources for that. Instead, it offers an insightful overview of how operational compliance is achieved and, more importantly, how you can harness compliance programs to drive positive outcomes: enhanced safety protocols, fortified security measures, sustainable practices, reduced environmental impact, assured quality standards, and the cultivation of trust with stakeholders.

I hope you find this primer to be an insightful guide on the topic of Operational Compliance – not a luxury, but a necessity for effective compliance.

Unlocking the Potential of ISO 37301


For compliance to succeed you must manage your obligations, but more importantly you need to keep your promises This requires several things working together to produce the outcome of compliance:

Better safety, security, sustainability, quality, lower risk, and ultimately better stakeholder trust.

ISO 37301 can help you achieve those outcomes. But only if you intend to keep your promises. Otherwise, it will just be another standard among others that add more work, cost and deliver few benefits.

In this webinar, I help you understand what ISO 37301 is all about, how it works, and how to use it to keep all your promises.

By doing so you will realize more than just incremental improvements. You will experience transformational benefits that compound year over year.
