A register of system rules LO29117

Replying to LO29090 --

I still don't believe in 'rules'. By all means provide 'guidance
material' and policy statements which call up standards and codes of
practice to control operational risks. However you can run away with your
old directive approach to management. Participation is the way I prefer
to work.

If you must have rules, how about :
'Try to continually improve our systems and practices.'
'Try to observe corporate policies and procedures whenever practicable'
'Where you cannot observe corporate policy, manage the risk involved'.

I suggest you might be locked into the old authoritarian paradigm, and I'm
not convinced we need 'rules'.

Best Regards,
alan Cotterell
