I.M.P.A.C.T. is a strategy for achievement and excellence that stands for Intention, Meditation, Projection, Action, Commitment, and Trust.

Intention is where the strategy begins by communicating and agreeing upon a unified intention.

Meditation is followed by individual and/or group meditation, visualizing to define and crystallize the desired outcome.

Projecting the vision involves affirming the outcome (“as-if”) and creating creative motivational catch phrases.

Action is the plan consistent with the Intention, Meditation, and Projection of the stated goals.

Commitment is necessary to achieve the stated goals.

Trust is built with refined communication and team efficiency and accountability.

Effective compliance with I.M.P.A.C.T. is a strategy for achievement and excellence to assist compliance professionals in developing, implementing, and managing their compliance programs to garner program effectiveness throughout an organization. For purposes of this discussion, if we articulate the intention of having an engaged and highly functioning compliance committee, we can use the I.M.P.A.C.T. strategy as one way to achieve that result.
