Benchmarking Your Policy Management Program

Executive Summary 

Policy matters; however, when you look at the typical organization you would think policies are irrelevant and a nuisance. Organizations often lack an auditable means of policy maintenance, communication, attestation, and training. Without policy, there is no written standard for acceptable and unacceptable conduct — an organization can quickly become something it never intended. Corporate policies define boundaries for the behavior of individuals, business processes, relationships, and systems. With today’s complex business operations, global expansion, and the ever-changing legal, regulatory and compliance environments, a well-defined policy management program is vital. GRC 20/20’s Effective Policy Management Benchmark provides a framework for an organization’s policy management program to be measured against peers within industry as well as organizations of similar size and structure across industries. The benchmark synthesizes GRC 20/20 research and analysis of the following key Policy Management Program components:

  • Governance of Policy Management Program
  • MetaPolicy
  • Supporting Policy Management Resources
  • Policy Management Lifecycle
  • Operational Effectiveness of Policy Management Program
  • Technology Enablement of Policy Management Program
