Best Practices in Governance

Driving Stakeholders’ Value to Outperform Competitors


Governance is the system by which companies are directed and managed. It should guarantee that the whole organization is aligned to the objectives of the board and vice versa that reliable operational information is reported. As a consequence, it is a major accountability on all levels of an organization. Governance influences how objectives are set and can be achieved, how risks are controlled and how performance can be optimized.

Best practices in governance help companies define the structure of their board, set accountability and ethics, define access to information and guarantee independence of controls.
