Within 10 years, we will all be reading about corruption scandals in Italy.
How do we know this? The International Olympic Committee just selected the country to host the 2026 winter Olympics.
Billions (trillions?) of euros will converge on the cities of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo in the next few years. Corrupt business people and politicians have already laid their plans.
So if your organization has a presence in Italy, the time to start building your defenses is now. Review your policies, create a multi-year training plan, implement new controls and schedule audits. More importantly, review all your processes and make sure they create the right culture.
Olympic Games and corruption go hand-in-hand. You can choose not to be part of it.
