The Proactive Certainty Playbook™

6-steps to effective compliance

1. Ascertain OBLIGATIONS

Ascertain mandatory and voluntary: prescriptive, performance, and outcome-based obligations.


Map capabilities, objectives, and key results to existing governance, program, and system processes.

2. Define MEASURES

Define measures of conformance, performance, effectiveness and integrity to evaluate status.


Evalute uncertainties and prepare risk plan to increase certainty of success.

3. Determine CAPABILITY

Determine necessary capabilities, capacity, and compentency to meet and sustain obligations.

6. Create ROADMAP

Create and implement roadmap to achieve, maintain, and advance compliance outcomes.

Companies need effective risk & compliance to ensure they stay between the lines, achieve strategic objectives, and make progress towards: zero incidents, zero harm, zero violations, zero emissions, and other stakeholder obligations. The traditional component-first approach focused on prescriptive requirements is too slow and often too late to keep up at the speed that risk becomes a reality.

Our obligation centric methodology makes sure that you are able to meet performance, and outcome-based objectives and avoid ending up in a ditch.
