Details: Last year, LRH Manufacturing had to implement a number of very formal processes and procedures to comply with the new Sarbanes-Oxley regulations. Sales people were mandated to closely track their expenses and book their revenues differently, and the commission program changed significantly. As a result, several sales people experienced some short-term personal cash flow problems as they adjusted to these new compensation models. The sales organization was informed about these changes in a three-page e-mail that came from the newly appointed "Compliance Officer." The e-mail was heavily legal and was written in a very condescending tone. As a result of this experience, the entire organization is leery of any processes, particularly those having many legal requirements.
