At many organizations, introducing new policies and procedures, and educating those affected by them about their importance, can require significant effort.
Some policies and procedures can be very technical or pertain to a specific legal requirement. This can be particularly true of compliance matters. This specialization may create the perception that the document exists within a very narrow silo at your organization. More challenging, it may create the sense that new territory is being covered and that few resources are available to assist you with developing and implementing the process.
