Companies continue to chase the ever-elusive effective compliance program, but despite dedicating inordinate amounts of time and resources to compliance and risk management, many continue to struggle. What is the next step when even the most tailored policies, procedures, training, testing and remediation result in continued misconduct?

Instead of attempting to decipher regulatory expectations to design a compliance program, this approach relies upon companies analyzing their own internal data to identify the behaviors they want to promote or stop on a priority basis.
