In my experience, policy management processes are in disarray when operating autonomously, introducing risk in today’s complex, dynamic, and distributed business environment. The typical organization lacks a structured means of policy development and governance with an inconsistent maze of templates and processes. Inconsistency in policy management means processes, partners, employees, and systems that behave like leaves blowing in the wind. Organizations struggle with policies that are out-of-date, ineffective, and not aligned to business needs. Policy inconsistency opens the doors of liability, as an organization may be held accountable for policy that is not appropriate or complied with.
