What comes after executive education?

Many of us within our GRC community often brainstorm on the best steps to take when a firm is just starting to consider investing in a GRC program initiative or system of record. Our team has seen a lot of responses to this question that range from writing a program charter to investing in a Strategic Value Assessment (SVA) to applying for corporate funds to make the investment.

There's a lot of options at this stage and that's why we'd like you to weigh in with your thoughts and experience.

Our take on this is that the prelude to a GRC program or system is to invest the necessary dollars and headcount to organize and map your firm's regulatory requirements, statutes, laws, and internal / external standards so that you can explain the rat's nest of GRC requirements to others.
