Organization and Initiative Governance Expertise

Structuring for agility, high performance and success

The state of an organization’s corporate or project governance is a reflection of its ability to adapt to change. Effective governance frameworks have a clear common purpose, flexible and agile decision-making structures, and efficient management systems to enable enhanced corporate performance.

SRI has extensive experience in assisting public and private sector organizations with developing and implementing governance frameworks. We:

  • Identify issues that must be addressed to avert risk, achieve corporate objectives and enhance performance. This involves defining and communicating the need and urgency for change among key stakeholders
  • Establish a fluid and agile process to implement change that is supported by an Executive champion or influential coalition
  • Develop and assist with implementing the new or amended performance model to promote and instill the desired:
    • Cultural Values – clearly defined expectations
    • Structures – authorities, roles and responsibilities
    • Systems of Management – verifying performance and providing decision makers with necessary information (data)
