Business Engineering

Regulations are like fences. In some cases, they can impede one’s progress. With the right strategy, however, they can be used to protect one’s property and enable it to flourish in a hostile environment.

Fence construction is not as easy as it seems, however. Without the right skills and experience, it is easy to become tangled in its barbs.

In short, regulatory requirements do not have to stifle good business practices. There may simply be a special way of implementing them within an organization's infrastructure.
