Governance

Even the best run organizations benefit from a periodic assessment of their governance structure and performance.  Governance is the set of processes, customs and policies that characterize how an organization operates. It encompasses the goals of that organization and its interactions.  We have helped organizations strengthen their governance by analyzing the vision, policies, internal controls, transparency and agility of the whole and its parts. We leave clients with actionable and supported recommendations.
