World Champions

Peter Sagan, for an historic third time in a row, earned the rainbow stripes of men’s road cycling world champion. And Chantal Blaak earned the rainbow stripes of women’s road cycling world champion. Over the weekend they competed on a thrilling course in Bergen, Norway. Salmon Hill, only 10 kilometers from the finish, splintered the peloton of leading riders, leaving only the best of the best for the run into the finish line.

Peter Sagan, beat Alexander Kristoff at the finish line by half of a wheel length after 267 kilometers of racing, with Michael Matthews coming in third. These are not the names you hear as the winners of the grand tours: the Tour de France, the Vuelta de Espana or the Giro d’Italia. Those three week stage races are very different than the one day races like the world championship. They are on bikes, but the racing involves different skills.

The same is true about compliance across firms and industries. There are similar concepts and similar goals. But the execution and implementation of the compliance program will be different. There are different regulatory requirements. There are different risks.

Can you be successful in compliance across different industries and firms? Of course.

Just as a bike race involves a bike. You can get to the finish line.
