Obligations come from many sources that include: regulations, standards, policies, mission and value statements, programs, processes, and many others. These are all used to help companies stay between the lines as they create value for their stakeholders.
However, many companies are uncertain as to whether or not they are meeting their obligations or even if they have the ability to do so. To be more certain you first need to identify and understand what your obligations are from which you can then measure effectiveness, performance, and compliance.
Whether you view compliance as a necessary evil or a necessary good you can still benefit from effective compliance. Consider joining The Proactive Certainty Program™ to take your compliance to the next level.
