Why Policy Management Matters
2020-07-30 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am CDT
Policies set the standard for acceptable and unacceptable conduct by defining boundaries for the behavior of individuals, the operation of business processes, and the establishment of relationships. When an organization fails to establish strong policies, the organization quickly becomes something it never intended. Good policies define the organization’s governance culture and objectives. Without the guidance provided by well-written and effectively managed policies, corporate culture may morph and take the organization down unintended paths.
Policies, done right, articulate, and build the desired corporate culture and drive standards for individual and business conduct. Issuing, well-crafted, and appropriately targeted policies is a necessary first step in clearly defining and communicating the organization’s boundaries, practices, and expectations. Policies are the vehicles that communicate and define values, goals, and objectives so that culture does not morph out of control. But the policies also must be professionally managed so that they are both effective and efficient tools to help the organization stay on the path it chooses.
This webinar aims to provide attendees with the business case and tools for developing a policy management strategy in their organizations. Attendees will learn:
- Why policies matter (and policy management)
- Elements of building a business case and strategy for policy management
- How to measure the value of policy management
- Overview of the policy management lifecycle
- The role of technology in enabling policy management
