The features in the Gazette of 13 April explore inter-related dilemmas. The procedural requirements of scrutiny and weakness in compliance both sit together in the awkward space of not just process but people leadership.

Compliance systems are dependent on effective leadership creating the best conditions for staff to operate.  

Without the same focus on developing leaders and individuals, compliance with process is only ever partial.
