A COMPLETE DIGITAL SOLUTION
Today there is a greater focus on Corporate Governance than ever before, and this is partly due to a massive loss in capital value by many companies due to perceived or actual unethical practices.
But even when ethics are not at issue, there is an urgent need for a technique to measure a Board’s actual governance performance. Organisations require a methodology and language to achieve incremental improvement across the many dimensions that directors are appointed to oversee. This is especially important where remote directors are managing the activities of subsidiary organisations or where there is potential risk for non-executive directors.
