- Is there a perception that the ‘business context’ is over or under regulated? What are the consequences of over or under regulation in this ‘business context’?
- What strategies are adopted by businesses to achieve compliance (or non-compliance) with regulatory requirements in this ‘business context’? What is considered ‘best practice’ in relation to compliance in this ‘business context’?
