Description

Compliance – the process of meeting regulatory requirements – can be cumbersome and costly. Often perceived as non-value added, the activities required to maintain and demonstrate compliance can lead a company to add personnel, create new processes and build elaborate control systems.

In the end, however, if a company is to operate within the law, compliance is not optional.

With the potential for escalating bureaucracy, some companies have found Six Sigma to be helpful in making regulatory compliance more efficient. Other companies do not think Six Sigma is applicable to managing or improving the compliance process.

This survey explores the extent to which Six Sigma is being applied in compliance efforts and the effects associated with it.
