Step 2 – Scoping what matters
Step 3 – Making the business case
Step 4 – Committing to action
Step 5 – Integrating across the business
Step 6 – Engaging stakeholders

Conclusion

The goal is that CBi and your processes and drills for ensuring conformity and commitment to integrity becomes “second nature” – that is, “the way that we do things around here”. The intention is to help an organisation to move from unconscious incompetence, through conscious incompetence, to conscious competence, to unconscious competence – because the techniques have now become totally embedded in the business as illustrated in the figure below.
