The best E&C programs kick the tires on a regular basis.
They understand that a program cannot run forever without adjustments, maintenance and repairs.
In a large organization, a program will have several elements: antitrust, anti-corruption, government contracting, international trade, privacy, cyber-security, ethical culture, etc. At any given time, one element is in the hot seat, getting all the attention, while another is considered safe and ignored.
A good program will make sure that no element is ignored for too long. Every fews years at the most, we need to kick the tires. If it can’t be done in-house, competent consultants can do this work quickly and at a reasonable price. It’s easy to budget for.
Regular maintenance is often cheaper than repairs.
