Prioritize and Focus On What’s Most Important

Creating Leaders at Every Level

Professional Development & Intent Based Leadership Training

Working with individuals and leaders to generate a culture of learning and openness where people can become the best version of themselves.

  • Intent-based leadership creates an environment for people to contribute so they feel valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.
  • Intent-based leadership is about designing an environment where people think out loud, give intent to each other and they feel valued and proud of their work. It helps give understanding into how they fit into the whole organization and its objectives. It helps them feel inspired, motivated, and take responsibility for their actions.
  • Intent-based leadership is about giving control and the decision-making power to people who maintain the information.

Incident Management & CAP Monitoring

Develop and monitor until completion a comprehensive corrective action plan (CAP) that outlines step by step actions.

  • Designed to achieve targeted outcomes for resolution of identified root cause errors
  • Identify the most cost-effective actions that can be implemented to correct error causes and minimize the potential for recurrence.

Security & Compliance Auditing

  • Security audit is a systematic evaluation of the security of a company’s information system by measuring how well it conforms to a set of established criteria. The thorough audit assesses the security of the system’s physical configuration and environment, software, information handling processes, and user practices against established controls.
  • Compliance audit is a comprehensive review of an organization’s adherence to regulatory guidelines. Audit reports evaluate the strength and thoroughness of compliance preparations, security policies, user access controls and risk management procedures over the course of a compliance audit. 

The main objective of conducting an internal or external security and/or compliance audit is to assess the overall effectiveness of a business’s practices and protocols. While examining processes and transactions, an opinion will be presented whether the item(s) being examined complies with established standards.
