The Regulator is Our First Customer
Compliance is a factor in so many industries across the spectrum. There are multiple aspects to compliance which impact all other areas of business. Project Managers need to understand the perspective of Compliance folk as they manage projects that could either impact compliance requirements or where a requirement could derail your project. Compliance is also an area that Project Managers may want to look at for their own future growth and career development. So this evening we will discuss the various Compliance aspects at a high level, review the Compliance perspective, and then Paul will outline what Compliance is all about in the gaming industry and how project management can positively impact Compliance departments.
