"Enhancing performance through humanising, modelling and measuring governance"
Improving Governance, Enhancing Performance
It was Paul Drucker who said, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”
This Governance Performance Indicia™ | govindicia™ assessment and governance model affords an organisation the ability to benchmark your own governance position, both against the model and against codes of corporate governance requirements.
A programme of improvement can then be designed and implemented on the specific areas identified by the assessment and in need of improvement.
This is not an exact science, as it will be dependent upon internal and unique aspects related to your business. However, as each of the components are tangible, this programme can put in place bespoke elements to focus on those aspects that are deemed to have the most significant influence on improving governance.
