Preparing for the Policy Management Change
2019-12-16 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The Policy Management Illustrated Webinar Series – Part Eleven. In this eleventh installment of the Policy Management Illustrated Webinar Series we walk you through steps you can take to identify and assess current policy management activities addressing each stage of the policy lifecycle, determine where gaps and unnecessary overlaps exist, and plan for the future state.
Every organization has a different level of organization and maturity in its approach to policy management. Virtually no one is starting from scratch. To the contrary, most organizations have hundreds or thousands of policies, including some that those who “need to know” don’t know about. Many also suffer with unstructured and inconsistent processes for designing and distributing policies, making training decisions and ensuring enforcement. Even beyond these problems, there often is no or little accountability for mapping policies to objectives, risks and changes in circumstances that are relevant to policy content. And then there is the challenge of multiple systems of record and information management.
Before an integrated and mature policy management structure can be put in place, you need to know the current state of affairs. Join us as we walk you through ways to gain that knowledge before you begin to make change.
- Identify aspects of current state policy management that must be evaluated
- Select methods used to collect and assess information
- Outline the current state and determine where to begin making change
