Keeping Policies Relevant in the Midst of Business Changes

2016-04-28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT



Businesses are dynamic and in a constant state of flux. Strategy, processes, technology, and employees transform faster than the speed of light. In this context, if not managed properly, organizational policies quickly become forgotten, irrelevant, or outdated. Policies, which are critical governance documents of an organization that establish a legal duty of care, are often haphazardly managed. These challenges grow in the midst of continuous organizational change and evolution. Significant events such as mergers and acquisitions bring in completely redundant or conflicting policies that remain indefinitely in the new organization. Unceasing change in employees with new ones entering the organization while existing employees shift and change roles and departments creates a significant challenge to keep employees fully aware of the policies in the context of their new role.

This webinar educates attendees on how to keep policies relevant and understood in the context of the continuously evolving organization. Attendees will learn processes and the role of a supporting information and technology architecture that enables the organization to keep policies current and relevant as well as understood across their dynamic organization.

Objectives of this webinar include:

  • Get a grip on business change and how it relates to policies
  • Develop a master policy index
  • Define processes that trigger policy review in context of change
  • Understand how to harmonize policies in the midst of mergers and acquisitions
  • Implement an information and technology architecture to support policy management in a dynamic environment
