Corporate governance & compliance

Use governance as a driver of performance — not a box to be ticked.

78% of organisations provide templates and training. But only 36% rate their board packs as “Good”.

The problem isn’t the amount of governance. It’s the way we do it.

With regulation and reporting requirements on the rise — from ESG to SMC&R and s172 — governance can be seen as a handbrake on performance, as well as the cause of ballooning board packs.

But switch your mindset from “preventing bad things from happening” to “enabling good things to happen”, and governance can become one of your most powerful drivers of performance — as long as you give your organisation the right processes and tools for the job.

Are your governance tools and processes up to scratch?


Boards need to take time to make time

Templates and training won’t fix your board pack

Training and templates are governance teams’ go-to fixes. But those who stop there rarely see long-term improvements.
