Organizations are often forced to prioritize agility and speed-to-market to anticipate shifts in consumer preferences. Compliance is often viewed as an impediment to this agility.
As with any consumer products organization, the quality and regulatory functions can be sources of competitive advantage if approaches are adjusted to the risk profiles of the organization’s products. Losing sight of the consumer while building an approach to compliance can be detrimental. However, the best direct-to-consumer operations cannot be left unchecked for compliance blind spots and opportunities to take proactive compliance measures.
There is no successful one-size-fits-all compliance strategy – it’s important that it works for your risk profile and business model. An effective strategy for compliance requires careful consideration of your specific needs, long- and short-term business objectives, resources, and culture.
Regularly re-evaluating the balance between your long-term compliance strategy and satisfying consumer expectations, particularly as you enter new product and geographic markets will accelerate time-to-market and minimize business risk.
