A clear whole of organisation governance framework supports the achievement of the organisation’s strategic objectives by clarifying that decision-making is tied to risk and there is accountability for the exercise of authority. It is also about empowering employees — allowing them to respond to changing circumstances, while ensuring that decisions are made within the risk appetite set by the board.

Join fellow members in a discussion about developments in this space as well as tips on how to create a plan to engage business stakeholders in understanding how their own organisation governs itself and their role in aiding the embedding process.
