ATLANTA: Effective Policy Management & Communication
Tuesday, June 19, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
Effective Policy Management & Communication . . .
Organizations have been in a complete disarray in managing corporate policies and procedures - policies often are out-dated, scattered across parts of the business, and not managed consistently. Further, the recent trend in legislation and regulatory guidance is to demonstrate training and not just attestation.
However, policies establish the culture, values, ethics, and duties of the corporation and its agents. Organizations that take an ad hoc approach to managing and communicating policies face significant risk to their business.
To consistently manage and communicate policies organizations are turning toward defined processes, workflow, and technologies to manage the lifecycle of policies. The policy management lifecycle involves several stages from definition, approval, communication, awareness, training, attestation, maintenance, and archiving. This is supported by a technology infrastructure to manage the content and process of policy management.
In the generation of Web 2.0 and YouTube it is no longer enough to simply make policies available, organizations need to deliver training and establish that individuals understand policies and procedures. Delivering interactive policy training modules has become just as important as presenting a written policy and tracking attestations.
Workshop Objectives . . .
Attendees of the Effective Policy Management & Communication workshop will specifically learn:
- Defining a process lifecycle for managing policies
- Establishing policy ownership and accountability
- Providing consistency in policies through consistent style and language
- Communicating policies across extended business relationships

- Monitoring metrics to establish effectiveness and/or issues with policies
- Relating policy management to risk, issue/case, and other GRC areas
