Innovation in User Experience for User Experience for Policy Management
The haphazard department and document-centric approaches for policy and training management of the past compound the problem and do not solve it. It is time for organizations to step back and implement a centralized strategy and approach to authoring, approving, maintaining, and communicating policies across the organization.
Workiva Wdesk is a solution that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with organizations that are using it in complex, distributed, and dynamic business environments. It allows organizations to manage GRC processes and content for internal control management, audit management, risk management, compliance management, and policy management. Wdesk is a cloud platform with capabilities to create and combine text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, dashboards, and charts in an easy-to-use and intuitive environment that delivers significant business value and brings a contextual understanding of organization policies and controls. In this context, GRC 20/20 has recognized Workiva Wdesk with a 2017 GRC Innovation Award for the best user experience in Policy Management.
