Time zone:

The Policy Management Illustrated Webinar Series – Part Ten. This tenth installment of the Policy Management Illustrated Webinar Series provides you with talking points to gain adherence to policies and support for your policies at every level of your organization.

A decade ago, we used to always hear people asking why policies matter. After all, they argued, aren't the laws and regulations we have to follow enough guidance, and don't policies restrict flexibility and create liability when they aren't followed? Surprisingly, we still hear these questions today.

In this webinar, we answer these and other questions about the value of policies in today’s risk laden business environment. We look at the role of policies in defining governance culture and objectives, setting the standard for acceptable conduct, and building desired culture.

Learning Objectives:

·      Developing talking points about the value of policies in building desired culture

·      Identifying benefits and outcomes from ensuring strong policies

·      Outlining how to use policies to define and communicate the organization's boundaries, practices, and expectations


·      Michael Rasmussen, GRC Research Analyst and Pundit, GRC 20/20 and OCEG Fellow
