Key Benefits:

  • Logic – the established framework should be reasonable and make sense to everyone involved.

  • Adequacy – there isn’t a set governance structure that works for everyone; this is something that should always be adjusted to the organisation or project at hand.

  • Transparency – all information regarding the governance structure has to be clearly stated, understandable and available to every team member.

  • Repeatability – the mechanisms and procedures involved should be all-encompassing, so that they can be applied repeatedly to any given situation.

  • Efficiency – the governance structure should allow any project to run as smoothly and productively as possible; it has to be solution-oriented.

  • Less bottlenecks or hurdles in the decision making process because the procedures and division of responsibilities are clearly defined;

  • Increased reliability and trust from our clients since the risk of potential misunderstandings or communication issues are reduced to a minimum


Additional Free Offerings:



    • Red-tapism,
    • Ineffective implementation of rules and laws,
    • Very low level of awareness of rights and duties among citizens, and the lack of accountability.
    • Strengthening the institutions of governance. Parliament is the supreme representative institution. The political representative represents the electorate. Many a times concerns are expressed on various fronts about the falling standards in the quality of participation, conduct of proceedings and so on.
    • Improving the functioning of civil service and bureaucracy. Ultimately it is the permanent executive that is responsible for policy implementation. It is necessary to develop a responsive civil service that is professional, energetic and caters to people's needs.
    • Reassuring the citizens with establishing an independent and accountable judiciary. The judiciary is to be seen as an effective instrument of maintenance of rule of law and upholding of social justice.
    • Making the private sector accountable through adopting sound business practices, adhering to rules and regulations and protecting the interests of consumers.
    • Educating the citizens about their rights and obligations, and making them partners in all development activities.
    • The issues and challenges that confront governance require effective functioning of three wings of government namely executive, legislature and judiciary and building appropriate linkages amongst the organs. Governance has to strike a suitable balance between parliamentary supremacy and judicial independence
