“The first step in solving a problem is to recognise that it does exist” – Zig Ziglar.
Every business will encounter a diverse variety of risk, some of which may have the potential to adversely affect its productivity and/or reputation. In extreme cases failure to address identified issues could cause serious damage which can be costly and time consuming to repair.
The implementation of more and more restrictive oversight and regulations are not the sole solution. Most businesses are made up of individuals committed to their purpose, employees and clients and overbearing regulation can stymie creativity and enterprise.
When things have gone wrong it is generally from bad behaviour, leadership and management rather than bad regulations or laws. Therefore, the answer to avoiding issues is simply better behaviour, management and communication.
