The administration problem is primarily that of reducing uncertainty within the organizational system (Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process - 1978). Solving it involves more than simply rationalizing systems already developed (uncertainty reduction); it also involves formulating and implementing those processes which will enable the organization to continue to evolve.
This necessarily impacts how risk & compliance systems are implemented. For managed compliance programs (i.e. safety, quality, environmental, regulatory) to be effective they must align with the specific goals, objectives, and strategies of the organization. These will be different based on each organizational type: Defender, Prospector, and Analyzer.
A mismatch in systems architecture will end up hindering the advancement of both business and compliance outcomes.
