Finally Escape the Reactive Uncertainty Trap

The Proactive Certainty Program™ is our advanced program designed to help you finally rise above The Reactive Uncertainty Trap to deliver continuous compliance value..

Based on our experience working with hundreds of organizations we learned many take a reactive and silo-ed approach to compliance. They may declare compliance, but are unsure their efforts will be effective to protect and ensure total value creation. They also wait until audited or for a serious incident to occur before they improve their compliance.


They are caught in The Reactive Uncertainty Trap™.


In this condition, finances are diverted to close gaps and patch holes in hopes that it will be enough which it seldom is. ​This creates a vicious cycle of non-conformance where assurance decreases, outcomes are not realized, and stakeholder trust diminishes over time. Everyone works hard unknowingly they might be one mishap, one violation, or one incident away from mission failure.

The Proactive Certainty Program

We also learned you can escape this trap if you take a proactive and integrative approach to compliance.​ Organizations that do, anticipate, plan, and act to ensure they keep their promises associated with all their obligations often with the resources they already have.


This is the outcome of effective Operational Compliance.

Finances are re-allocated to always stay between the lines and ahead of risk creating a virtuous cycle of conformance where assurance increases, outcomes are realized, and stakeholder trust grows over time.  Everyone works with confidence they are operating far from the edge of mission failure.

How To Transform Your Compliance


To rise above The Reactive Uncertainty Trap we recommend that you:

  • Take ownership of all your obligations,

  • Establish real-time systems to monitor compliance and risk, and

  • Intentionally improve the certainty of meeting all your obligations over time.


We provide two options to help you succeed: basic and advanced.


While other consultants can provide you with basic compliance services, our advanced program - The Proactive Certainty Program™ -  only available from us, takes everything to a much higher level, and you don't need to give up any existing consultants or management standards to join.

This program is not for everyone. It's specifically for forward-looking, ethical organizations who take their obligations seriously, and strive to continually raise their standards.

The Proactive Certainty Process™

The Proactive Certainty Program™ consists of the following four-step process:

  1.  ORIENT: quickly assess your compliance situation and identify areas of risk and improvement.

  2.  MAP: learn as you assess, analysis, and create your program road map towards total value.

  3.  OPERATIONALIZE: implement essential functions, behaviours and interactions to achieve operability.

  4.  ELEVATE: continually realize better and greater compliance outcomes over time.


By engaging in these four steps, you can finally realize the benefits from all your hard work.  Instead of working hard and hoping for the best, you can make sure your outcomes are advanced.

The first step is offered at no cost to help you quickly assess your compliance situation and decide if this program is right for you.

1. Orient

The first step is where we help you assess your compliance situation and identify areas of risk and improvement.

At the end of this step, you’ll have a clear understanding of your compliance situation and actionable steps you can take to improve your compliance. We will also decide together if this program is the right fit for your organization.


By completing The Proactive Certainty Scorecard™ and participating in a hands-on working session (60-minutes) you'll quickly learn what is holding you back from being more proactive with your compliance. We will also decide together if this program is right for you.

2. Map

This step is where you learn essential concepts and principles as you create your road map towards greater proactivity and certainty in meeting all your obligations and keeping all your promises.

During this 13-week engagement the program owner, compliance team and obligation owners (depending on the package chosen) will actively engage in learning, charting, and the development of a detailed road map to operationalize and then elevate your compliance to realize better outcomes over time.


3. Operationalize

This step is where you build what’s essential to operationalize your obligations.


A minimum level of operability, Minimum Viable Compliance (MVC), is necessary before actual benefits can be realized.


During this step your team will establish essential functions, behaviours, and interactions to achieve Minimal Viable Compliance to begin enjoying the benefits that come from staying between the lines and ahead of risk.

4. Elevate

After achieving MVC, you are now ready to generate greater compliance value.


This step focuses on continual improvement raising the bar to new heights of effectiveness and benefits.


This means more than incremental improvements. To advance compliance outcomes you need to advance compliance capabilities. That’s why this step is a game changer.  It takes everything to the next level.
