The Proactive Certainty Challenge

UPDATED - May 17, 2020

Knowing how to manage in the presence of uncertainty is a skill that is in short supply, but also something you can learn. We developed The Proactive Certainty Program™ to help organizations just like yours be more proactive with their compliance in response to changes in regulations and standards towards performance and outcome-based objectives.  Most industries have adopted Vision Zero targets such as: zero emissions, zero violations, zero harm, zero fatalities, and others. Prescriptive regulatory designs are seen as no longer enough to make progress against these targets. Instead, companies will need to develop their own approaches to advance their capabilities using risk-based and continuous improvement approaches. Effective organizations benefit from incorporating risk, lean and performance management into their risk & compliance programs to make progress against their quality, safety, security, environmental and regulatory objectives. It starts by deciding to be proactive which is a countermeasure to reactive behaviors caused by uncertainty and made worse by a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic. To help you be more proactive we are offering free memberships to the Proactive Certainty Program™.
