Donna Boehme – January 2014 – Compliance & Ethics Professional
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
— Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513
This month’s column is dedicated to all those brave souls from other professions who are currently “transitioning” into Compliance. Or perhaps skydiving is a better visual. Maybe you’ve come to the profession by choice or maybe (gasp) by involuntary assignment. Either way, welcome to our world—and hold on to that parachute… you may need it.
