Compliance Strategy in Management Consulting

In a rapidly changing business world, characterized by complex regulatory requirements and constant evolution, a robust compliance strategy is crucial. This strategy forms a part of the foundation of the compliance function in companies by aligning with the business strategy and specific risk profile. It creates the basis for effective compliance measures and ensures that companies meet regulatory requirements while evolving their business model.

Success factors

Overview of Compliance Strategy

Our compliance strategy is tailored to integrate seamlessly into a company's business model and take into account its specific requirements. Core components of the strategy include:

  1. Compliance (CP) Objectives: Precise definition of objectives and guidelines as the foundation for all compliance transformation projects, along with the derivation of criteria to measure the degree of goal achievement.
  2. Regulatory Context: Identification of relevant regulations and specification of customer-specific implementation.
  3. Business Models and Risk Profile: Alignment of the CP strategy with business objectives and assessment of CP risks.
  4. Compliance Culture: Development of a corporate culture that sees compliance as an integral part.
  5. CP Awareness: Designing a charter for employee familiarity with compliance directives and guidelines.

Success factors for the implementation of the compliance strategy

The following factors are decisive for the successful implementation of the compliance strategy:

  • Coordinated Developments: Synchronizing operational business and compliance strategies.
  • Clearly Defined CP Objectives: Developing specific, measurable, ambitious, realistic, and time-bound goals.
  • Effective Communication & "Tone from the Top": Establishing a CP communication strategy to enhance understanding, engagement, and cultural development.
  • Consistent Risk Assessment: Conducting specific CP risk analyses, realistic risk evaluations, and defining adequate mitigation measures.
  • Integrated CP Controls: Deriving and implementing detailed CP control concepts.
  • Transparency through CP Reporting: Defining risk and performance indicators and establishing appropriate reporting and escalation processes.
  • Regulatory Radar: Implementing solutions for continuous monitoring of regulatory changes.
  • Comprehensive Training Plans: Developing targeted CP training, supported by KPIs to measure success.


In shaping regulatory requirements lies the opportunity to not only comply with legal mandates but to actively design and profitably implement compliance.
