Case Study One
This organisation wanted to improve its corporate governance at a Board level.
Using AS8000 – Good Governance Principles as the basis, a corporate governance manual was developed which set out clear guidelines with regard to roles and responsibilities of the board and board members, decision-making processes and continuous improvement, fraud and corruption control, whistle-blower protection, corporate social responsibility and codes of conduct.
This lead to clear guidelines as to expectations of the Board and organisation and better decision-making.
Case Study Two
The organisation wanted a risk and compliance management system to form part of an overriding management framework starting at board level and filtering down through all levels of the organisation.
Using ISO AS/NZS 31000 as the basis and in consultation with key stakeholders a review of the organisation was undertaken to discover the issues being faced – both real and perceived. A solution was then developed that incorporated a risk policy, risk matrix and risk treatment plans.
Strategies were adopted around top management commitment, implementation, monitoring and measurement and continual improvement and we managed the implementation of this throughout the organisation.
This lead to an effective risk and compliance regime with the organisation being able to demonstrate its commitment to compliance with relevant laws, industry codes, and organisational standards as well as standards of good corporate governance, ethics and community and client expectations.
