Risk Management and Governance

What is Governance?

Governance is how organisations or groups within them, organise to make decisions. As such, the need for governance exists anytime the people in your organisation come together to accomplish an end. Governance mostly rests on three dimensions: authority, decision-making and accountability. Governance within any organisation determines who has power, who makes decisions, how other stakeholders make their voice heard.

Top 3 benefits of deploying governance standards

  • Trust in transparent accountable decision-making processes
  • Better decisions informed by good information, data and feedback
  • Legislative responsibilities are more likely to be complied with, as they are more readily held to account by stakeholders
