Aggressive growth is a great business goal, but to achieve it the smart way, organizations need to have their houses in order first. One Top 25 bank was recently moving forward with a growth plan when it was stopped in its tracks by a consent order. Rather than gearing up for expansion, the company found itself needing to implement and maintain an effective Compliance Management Program (CMP) to meet consumer protection regulations – and the team charged with the effort had limited bandwidth and expertise.
Spinnaker joined the effort and applied our compliance expertise to help the team develop a clear, comprehensive compliance monitoring program. During the targeted engagement, we advised the bank’s relatively new team on whether they were performing the right activities and how they could balance new tasks with existing ones.
Recognizing that staff confusion and frustration over transactional testing might contribute to resistance from the team, our approach included training compliance advisors on identifying ways to streamline their work while developing effective monitoring plans. In addition to recommendations on monitoring tools, we provided monitoring scripts and regulatory guidance related to monitoring programs.
Spinnaker’s specialized advisory support, guidance and training helped a new team build its CMP competence and develop a new streamlined process that will deliver trusted results – and an upcoming audit should be an excellent final test.

As most entrepreneurs will tell you, developing a business plan is one of the first critical to-do’s for establishing a new entity. Once that item is checked off the list, there’s often an eagerness to move straight into execution. But hammering out the details of your organization’s “what” is only a starting point. Particularly in professional services, there’s tremendous value in solidifying the very meaningful – albeit intangible – elements around team and culture, which are big drivers in enabling effective execution.

The Big Picture We remember spending hours (if not days) each month in mind-numbing tedium as junior analysts, producing regular reporting for our business lines. The recurring exercise had us piecing together data from various sources, manually updating Excel files and praying fervently that none of the associated formulas got corrupted along the way. Excel would generate new graphs, which we transferred over to PowerPoint, and, more often than not, further manipulation would be required to fit them into the approved templates to avoid formatting glitches. Copy-Paste was both our dearest friend and greatest foe.
