Due to the dynamic nature of the industry needs, there are so many moving parts that it gets hard to keep up. Based on my experiences in over 20 global projects, I share my top 10 steps to execute effective Risk management and compliance projects, based on some of the best practices I have seen in the industry by some incredibly successful leaders.
