We have been getting accountability all wrong in the compliance profession. It’s not a set of tasks – it’s a way of thinking and it has to come from the heart as well as the head. On Accountability: The Heart of Compliance Tom Fox and Sam Silverstein dig into what accountability means to the corporate compliance function and business organizations and most significantly, how to make it an integral part of your culture. In this episode Sam and I conclude our three-part series to considering the current disaster Boeing finds itself in from the accountability perspective and what it might do to crawl out of the deep hole it finds itself in. In this Part 3, we consider accountability to other stakeholders and what accountability means in a heavily regulated industry. Some of the highlights include:

  • What are the three standards of an accountable legacy?
  • The role of culture is well understood in the compliance community. What is the role of accountability in creating and sustaining a great culture?
