The Proactive Certainty Program™
The Proactive Certainty Program™ helps you take a proactive and systems approach to compliance so you can always stay between the lines and keep all your promises.
This advanced program consists of a four-step process designed to help you achieve compliance operability and improve effectiveness over time.
1. Orient – Quickly evaluate your compliance and identify areas of risk and improvement.
2. Map – Map your current compliance landscape and develop a road map towards more effective compliance.
3. Operationalize - Implement essential capabilities to reach operational readiness.
4. Elevate - Continuously improve your compliance effectiveness over time.
During the first step, which we offer at no cost, we help you assess your compliance landscape and identify where you might quickly improve your compliance.
To evaluate your current situation we created The Proactive Certainty Scorecard™ which is followed by a hands-on working session (60 minutes) with one of our compliance experts.
At the end of this session you will have a better understanding of your situation and where you might make improvements.
We then decide together if continuing with this program is right for you.

The second step is a 12-week process where we help you map your existing compliance landscape as you learn important principles of a proactive and systems approach to compliance.
Each week consists of coaching sessions and activities designed to help you develop your road map towards operational and effective compliance. This requires a 4-hour per week commitment on your part.
At the end of this step you will know more about: your obligations, the capabilities of your systems and processes, risk, and how to be more certain of achieving your compliance goals and objectives.
You will also have an improvement road map to achieve compliance operability, which means all essential processes and behaviours working together.
The third step is where you implement your road map to achieve operational readiness of your compliance program.
We use a combined LEAN/Systems approach influenced by the work by Eric Ries (Lean Startup) to emphasize system interactions to achieve operational status sooner than traditional approaches.
During this step we assist and augment your existing resources to establish essential processes and behaviours needed to achieve operational status.
At the end of this step not only will you have a working system – you will have a system that works.
To meet performance and outcome objectives, compliance systems must achieve progressive targets and higher levels of effectiveness over time.
That's why we recommend that you continuously advance your capabilities so that you can achieve higher standards that are consistent with your promises and values.
The fourth step is different from sustainability initiatives which are designed to maintain a specific state or equilibrium. Instead, this step takes everything to a higher level.
During this step we assist and augment your existing resources to monitor your systems, evaluate effectiveness, and improve capabilities to achieve higher levels of effectiveness.
