Our Expertise and Services

Our expertise and scope of services brings together the critical components of boardroom leadership and organisational performance and governance requirements.

Our expertise addresses the nine key areas of the  scope of services Governance framework illustrated below and detailed on the opposite slides.

We assist Boards and their organisational Leadership develop their Strategic Framework, and within this, their Strategy Development and Approval Processes, leading to execution, monitoring, reporting and ongoing strategy management activities.

We assist the Board in recommending and in implementing best practices  for the Board to adopt in its Strategy Approach and its annual Strategy Agenda, in order to become a high performance Board.

This may involve the following broad strategy phases:

  1.  Defining the overall Strategic Framework and initiating Key Processes
  2. Analysing and Defining the Options.
  3. Approving the Strategy.
  4. Executing the Strategy.
  5. Monitoring, Reporting and Adjusting on Strategy.
We also understand the practical challenges for Boards and their organisations, whom may be at different levels in terms of Strategy Maturity capabilities.
 
Based on our practical market experience, we define two broad categories of Board’s, their respective organisation, and consequently the approaches that we may adopt, as follows:
 
  • Traditional Strategy Planning – those that are more suited to formally commencing their strategic journey from the start point of a defined strategic vision.
  • Scenario Based Strategic Planning – those that are able to adopt and manage a scenario development process, to single out and assess the appropriate trends that are most likely to occur, identifying those most important to the success of the organisation, around which they actively plan and manage their course, cognizant of ongoing direction and their ability to adjust into or out of scenarios as they unfold.

Which ever approach, or their combination, makes good business sense for your organisation:

We comment specifically on Governance focused at Board level in our Section below – “Our Specific Boardroom Services” that you may wish to read in conjunction with this section.

Governance broadly, is defined as the Structure and Process used to Direct and Manage the affairs of the organisation with the objective of enhancing stakeholder value. The structure and process define the Division of Power (Authority), Policies and establish the mechanisms for achieving Accountability amoung stakeholders, the governing body and management.

Corporate Governance applies to all forms of organisation that are incorporated to form legal entities separate from their founders, and is defined as the ethical and effective leadership by the governing body towards the achievement of the following governance outcomes:

  • Ethical culture
  • Good performance
  • Effective control, and
  • Legitimacy.

GRC Consulting believes in the achievement of the above four governance outcomes, that are of themselves embodied in sound corporate governance principles, which build on one another, reinforce each other and hold true across organisations, and are achieved through the application of best practices embodying each principle and its aspirations.

We assist Boards and their leadership in developing their:

  • Structures – Both functional and operational, from the Board at holding company level, through subsidiary governance layers to group structures and their component parts and to ensure that these are consistent with the overarching strategy in order to maximise the organisations structural performance in pursuit of its strategic objectives.
  •  Processes – From those within and from the Board, into organisation wide operational processes, addressing their development, structuring, efficiency, effectiveness, improvement and overall management. We understand the critical nature of underlying processes to outcomes based organisations and their role within and in support of governance.
  • Authority – defining authority at and within the Board and of its cascade throughout the organisation to ensure efficiency and effective leadership and decision making, with appropriate checks, balances, feedback and controls, to achieve organisation performance and strategic objectives. 
  • Policies –  over their development, approval, implementation and maintenance, in order to give proper effect to strategy and strategic direction and the related frameworks, standards and plans that establish the scope within which judgement is exercised, decisions are made and actions taken in the ultimate stewardship of the organisation, its resources and direction.
  • Accountability – appropriate structures and answering for the execution of all established material  responsibilities, both at a Board and operational level, ensuring, whilst delegated responsibility is clear, defined, transparent, reportable and supported, that accountability is not delegated.

We believe that the organisation should be focused on and managing the business, not managing risks. Organisations do not prosper, add value and achieve their strategic objectives by managing risk. They do so by setting and then executing on strategies and objectives through making and acting on intelligent and properly informed decisions. Risk Management is therefore an integral part of all decision making across all levels of the organisation and consequently a central component of an organisation’s strategic management.

A key value we bring is helping Boards and organisations effectively and efficiently approach and address their risk governance frameworks, risk processes and help identify, evaluate and translate how risk matters may impact and affect the business, how to best manage these, therefore leading to appropriate mitigation controls and solutions, and leveraging opportunity, that ultimately assist in driving improved performance and enhanced achievement of strategic objectives.

The most simple definition of Risk, is “anything uncertain (positive or negative) that impacts on the achievement of objectives”.

Consider Risk Management, as the art of ensuring that you do not slip, by treading onto a “banana skin”! It operates to identify and pull it out of your path. Risk Management enables more informed decision-making, from the setting or modification of strategy to the decisions made constantly across the organisation. This is what executives do each and every day in pursuit of creating sustainable value.

“The effective management of risk enables more informed decision-making, from the setting or modification of the organisation’s strategy to the decisions made every day across the extended enterprise. The processes and related policies, structures and systems for identifying analysing, evaluating and responding to risks are established by management with oversight by the governing body to ensure that the effects of uncertainty (both positive and negative) on the achievement of objectives are understood and managed consistent with the desires of the governing body, for the purposes of achieving objectives, acting with integrity, and delivering optimal value to the organisations stakeholders.”

We help Boards and Leadership correctly approach and address their risk management frameworks and processes, for example:

  • Establishment of the Risk Committee, its terms of reference, selection and training of Directors in their mandate and their terms of reference.
  • Addressing how the Risk Committee establishes and implements its responsibilities for the governance of risk and how it should be approached and addressed in the organisation.
  • Establishing policy that articulates and gives effect to the Boards’ direction on risk.
  • Establishing and defining the Boards risk appetite and the ongoing processes by which it will be maintained and or updated as the organisation operates, including articulating the nature and extent or limit of the risks that the organisation should be willing to take, in pursuit of its strategic objectives.
  • Articulating the definition of the Boards Risk Appetite into a cohesive framework for communication and cascade down through the organisations’ leadership and personnel.
  • Assisting the executive leadership in its implementation of the risk management framework, processes, reporting, monitoring, management, decision making and periodic structuring of Board Information.
  • Assisting on the integration and analysis of risk inputs to the overall organisation strategy and its ongoing direction.
  • Conducting risk management facilitated workshops, together with detailed mitigation, solutions development and planning.

In our decades of undertaking risk management mandates over four continents, we have found that adopting electronic, anonymous, collaborative, real-time, facilitated sessions for our clients, to be the fastest, most efficient approach, that builds the highest team consensus and “on the same page” detailed understanding of cross organisational issues and what solutions are best required to address them.

We are experts at this approach, use of this technology and helping Boards and leadership get to the key aspects of problems and challenges that they may be facing, quickly, efficiently and in the most simple way.

We are Boardroom Leadership Governance, Risk and Compliance Experts.

Want to work with us?

We believe in and support the view that “compliance is an act of adhering to and the ability to demonstrate adherence to, mandated requirements, defined by laws, regulations, as well as voluntary requirements resulting from contractual obligations and internal policies” – the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG), and is a critical component of the organisations corporate defense framework, that we would also contend, extends to market conventions, industrial codes and best practices, and internal standards, policies, protocols and procedures.

There is a marked recent increase in the efforts by regulators and lawmakers to enhance and improve sound corporate practices, all of which devolve down to a corresponding marked increase in the threat of sanction to the organisation and prosecution and liability to individuals, particularly Boards and their Directors.

We believe that a proactive approach to compliance management and the development of an appropriate corporate compliance framework can provide and add significant value and strategic advantage. Simply, finding and fixing the problems (compliance) proactively is of greater value and effective use of organisation resources than not having appropriate compliance and its risks.

Given in practice that we see significant differences across jurisdictions and geographies, each organisation should ensure that it has appropriate compliance measures in place, particularly when its interests are geographically dispersed and its required development level positioned as a function of the maturity and complexity of the legal and regulatory frameworks within which it operates.

We help Boards and Leadership, recognising that there is often no unique perfect prescribed way to deliver a Compliance Program, and that its development maybe be suited to what works best for the organisation by ensuring that the fundamentals are properly developed and operating to support the achievement of strategic and operating objectives, such as:

  • Oversight – Ensuring and or developing, that the Board clearly sets the direction for how compliance should be approached and addressed within the organisation and its oversight of the leadership and management and their reporting to the Board. This includes, where appropriate, a Board Committee and terms of reference, identified organisation personnel with clear terms of reference and authority, underpinned by a compliance vision, mission, strategy, plan, program of action and effective and efficient organisation wide compliance processes.
  • Protocols – Ensuring and or developing, that the Board has established and approved appropriate policies and procedures to help ensure that the organisation is able to manage and achieve its compliance mandate and obligations. This should include defined and acceptable norms, including which non-binding rules, codes and standards have been adopted,  and those norms that are equally unacceptable, together with the procedures and consequence for such, appropriately tied into the organisations integrity position, ethics policy, code of conduct and related best practices for daily business conduct.
  • Due Diligence – Ensuring and or developing, from the Board down through management, in support of the governance principle of ethical and effective leadership, that the organisation has appropriate Board and personnel appointment and monitoring processes, controls and reporting.
  • Education – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation has established and maintains an appropriate education program to cement the desired culture, educate the Board and all personnel, communicating on a continual basis with regard to compliance obligations and their developments.
  • Monitoring – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation has appropriate and continuous monitoring and flow of compliance information into the correct level of decision making through back up to the Board, covering both the internal and external environment relevant to the organisation.
  • Enforcement – Ensuring and or developing, that the Board and leadership have established appropriate continuous and consistent enforcement mechanisms, both those that work as incentives and those that are disciplinary, including whistleblower and other confidential lines of communication to independent, board and leadership layers.
  • Response – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation has put in place appropriate systems to respond to and manage compliance matters, including the rectification capability to learn from and adapt to incidents and changing environmental compliance and threat landscapes.

We believe that Intelligence and its management, in the most simple terms, is the organisational framework and processes, ensuring that it gets the right information to the right person, for the right purpose, in the right format, at the right time and place, in support of informed decision making and decision taking, from the Board right throughout the organisation. Organisational Intelligence is the capability of the organisation to create knowledge and use it strategically, operationally and to adapt in response to changing conditions. This is increasing critical in today’s “knowledge economies” and knowledge strategic competitive business environment.

We also contend, based on our practical board experience and knowledge of diverse industries and clients, that whilst some organisations are attuned to and better placed, much remains to be done for the broad remainder to truly harvest data and generate relevant, timely useful knowledge for strategic benefit, decision making and the creation of sustainable value.

We help Boards and Leadership develop these capabilities, at an appropriate depth and organisational coverage,  to ensure that the organisation improves and enhances its critical decision making areas based on the best available intelligence and embed the necessary framework, policies, processes and procedures tied into the underlying data accessible to the organisation. This may include the develop of:

  • Governance – balancing the current and future maturity needs of the organisation as to the Board and leadership level structures and personnel required to drive such frameworks, their terms of reference, mandates and authority and how they work within and with existing structures, so as to best enhance the organisations knowledge, strategic and decision making capabilities.
  • Business Considerations – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation appropriately considers, establishes and or leverages:
    • Business Intelligence – How the organisation currently and how it should moving forward, address and best utilise: strategic intelligence; external and market intelligence; competitor intelligence; and operational intelligence.
    • Knowledge Intelligence –  How the organisation currently and how it should moving forward, address and best utilise: data, content, documents, records and their related processes to drive knowledge generation and management.
    • Communication – How the organisation currently and how it should moving forward, address and best utilise: the formats of and needs for intelligence and the various channels of communication available to and best suit for conveying intelligence to the Board, leadership and across the organisation, including other stakeholders.
    • Personnel and Skills – How the organisation currently and how it should moving forward, address and best utilise: its personnel at all levels, new skills and training and related intelligence requirements across the organisation, how these will be established, developed and provided.
  • Data Considerations – Ensuring and or developing, the necessary controls and practices that will address the organisations data to ensure that it is appropriate: Accurate; Reliable; Relevant; Up to date; Objective; and Accessible.
  • Intelligence Program Considerations – Ensuring and or developing, the appropriate environment and culture from the Board throughout the organisation to properly support the Intelligence framework, policies, processes, procedures and ultimately the generation of knowledge for decision support and its integration into the organisation, that is driven by a properly structured and authorised program that addresses: Organisation business requirements; Data; Information; Insight; Organisation actions; Knowledge, its management and uses; Organisational Learning and Strategic action.

We believe that security and security management, at its core, is simply the capability of the organisation to appropriately protect its critical assets, comprising, its people, information, technology and facilities from threat, thereby positively influencing stakeholder confidence and securing the organisations reputation.

Whilst fundamentally, this necessitates, basic and proper risk management, it also requires appropriate problem identification, management and elimination, in short, a security framework, policies, processes, procedures and reporting, amoungst others. Further, many organisation struggle with a disconnect between their Board and Leadership and Technology and Technology’s Leadership, particularly, understanding and communication of the technology business fundamentals, around which, in today’s increasingly technology centric organisations, technology is so critical and pervasive.

We help Boards and Leadership develop these capabilities, at an appropriate depth and organisational coverage,  but focused at a governance level to the Board and Leadership, to ensure that the organisation develops, implements and embeds the necessary framework, policies, processes and procedures tied into the underlying organisation and its technology, data and systems, in order to adequately protect its critical assets. This may include the development of:

  • Governance – balancing the current and future maturity needs of the organisation as to the Board and leadership level structures and personnel required to drive such frameworks, their terms of reference, mandates and authority and how they work within and with existing structures, so as to best protect the organisations’ critical resources.
  • Security Program Considerations – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation appropriately considers, establishes and or leverages:
    • Safety – appropriate safeguards that protect the organisations critical resources from threat.
    • Privacy – appropriate safeguards over the privacy of both data and its related parties. Particularly, given GDPR (Global Data Protection Regulations) and similar recent legislations.
    • Confidentiality – appropriate safeguards that ensure access to information operates in accordance with its classification, such as sensitivity, importance and need to utilise.
    • Integrity – appropriate safeguards that ensure that the organisations information can be trusted.
    • Availability – appropriate safeguards that ensure that there is reliable authorised access to information.
  • Business Considerations – Ensuring and or developing, that the organisation appropriately considers, establishes and or leverages:
    • Assets Inventory – to inventory, classify and prioritise the organisations critical assets.
    • Security Domains – to identify and consider the various domains within which the critical assets of the organisation reside with a view to their prioritisation and manner of safeguard.
    • Threat Identification and Analysis – to identify and consider the possible types, sources and range of threat scenario’s, their response and action plans, in accordance with the standing of the various critical assets.
    • Vulnerability – to identify and consider the organisations most possible and or likely aspects of vulnerability and extent, in relation to the threat landscape envisaged.
    • Security Response Measures – to identify and develop, with appropriate classification, the range of related security response measures, their triggers, authorisation and execution processes and plans.

We believe that Resilience and its management is the capability of the organisation to sustain its business and operations and recover from material change and or disruptions.

We help Boards and Leadership develop these capabilities, at an appropriate depth and organisational coverage,  but focused at a governance level on the Board and Leadership, to ensure that the organisation develops, implements and embeds the necessary framework, policies, processes and procedures, tied into the underlying organisation, to adequately protect its critical assets and sustain its business and operations.

We believe in and support the view that, “Internal Control is broadly defined as a process, effected by an organisation’s Board of Directors, management and other personnel, designed to provide reasonable assurance, regarding the achievement of objectives over: the effectiveness and efficiency of operations; reliability of financial reporting; and compliance with applicable laws and regulations – the Treadway Commission – The Committee of Sponsoring Organisations (COSO) – “Internal Control – Integrated Framework”.

We also believe in and support the position that the installation of an integrated framework of internal controls that is effective, is fundamental to safeguarding the organisations business, critical assets, resources and reputation.

We help Boards and Leadership develop these capabilities, at an appropriate depth and organisational coverage,  but focused at a governance level to the Board and Leadership, to ensure that the organisation develops, implements and embeds the necessary framework, policies, processes and procedures, tied into the underlying organisation and its systems, in order to adequately protect its critical assets and reduce its risk exposures. This may include the development of:

  • Governance and Oversight – ensuring and or developing, that the Board clearly sets the direction for how internal control should be approached and addressed within the organisation and its oversight of the leadership and management and their reporting to the Board. This includes, where appropriate, a Board Committee and terms of reference, identified organisation personnel with clear terms of reference and authority, underpinned by an internal control vision, mission, strategy, plan, program of action and effective and efficient organisation wide internal control framework.
  • Internal Control Deliverables and Objectives – ensuring and or developing, an effective internal controls framework that helps the organisation mitigate risk and achieve strategic and related objectives, including:
    • Financial Reporting Objectives – ensuring and or developing, appropriate financial controls that assist in ensuring the integrity, reliability, validity and accuracy of information systems, financial information and the reliability and ultimate presentation of the organisations financial and other reports.
    • Operational Objectives – ensuring and or developing, appropriate operational controls that assist the organisation achieve its strategic and operational objectives, effective and efficient operations with appropriate use of the organisations resources and safeguard of its critical assets.
    • Compliance Objectives – ensuring and or developing, appropriate compliance controls to ensure that the organisation complies with all relevant laws, regulations and internal and external codes, standards and best practices.
  • Business Considerations – ensuring and or developing an appropriate balance within the internal controls framework, such that the internal controls not only address the organisations risk exposure but are cost effective in achieving this. Therefore, consideration of:
    • Control Objectives – ensuring and or developing, appropriate consideration as to the objective of a control and the associated level of comfort that it may provide.
    • Level of Risk – ensuring and or developing, appropriate consideration as to the associated and or anticipated level of risk, both inherent and post effective operation of the internal control and therefore determination / satisfaction of the remaining exposure.
    • Level of Comfort – ensuring and or developing, appropriate consideration as to the establishment of the “reasonable” level of comfort required in various areas of the organisation and its operations.
    • Control Types – ensuring and or developing the most appropriate range and application of preventative / detective vs manual / automated vs primary / secondary compensating controls.

We believe in and support the view that assurance and assurance management, comprising both internal assurance and external (independent) assurance, may be defined as the frameworks in place that operate to provide an assessment to stakeholders as to the state of the organisation, its operation, financial reporting and other related matters, subject to understanding the scope of the two respective assurance components. The International Auditing and Assurance Board (IAASB) describes an assurance engagement as “an engagement in which a practitioner expresses a conclusion designed to enhance the degree of confidence of the intended users other than the responsible party.”

In simple terms, this is generally taken, when considering internal and external assurance, to refer to “Internal Audit/ors and “External Audit/ors” but not exclusively.

We help Boards and Leadership develop these capabilities around “Internal Assurance”, at an appropriate depth and organisational coverage,  but focused at a governance level to the Board and Leadership, to ensure that the organisation develops, implements and embeds the necessary framework, policies, processes and procedures, tied into the underlying organisation, its systems and internal controls, in order to adequately protect its critical assets. This may include the development of:

  • Governance and Oversight – ensuring and or developing, that the Board clearly sets the direction for how assurance, both internal and external assurance should be approached and addressed within the organisation and its oversight of the leadership and management and their reporting to the Board. This includes, where appropriate, a Board Committee and terms of reference, identified organisation personnel with clear terms of reference and authority, underpinned by an internal assurance vision, mission, strategy, plan, program of action and effective and efficient organisation wide assurance framework.
  • Internal Assurance Deliverables and Objectives – ensuring and or developing, an effective internal assurance framework that helps the organisation mitigate risk and achieve strategic and related objectives, including:
    • General Assurance – ensuring and or developing, the capability and business environment, such that, generally a range of assurance providers are able to provide adequate assurance that in general, the organisation is being managed and operated in an appropriate manner.
    • Financial Assurance – ensuring and or developing, the capability and business environment that the financial information and reporting can be given adequate assurance as to the operation of financial controls and that the financial reporting is accurate, reliable and free of material misstatement. In practice this may only be possible for internal assurance on a narrower scope, subject to availability, skills and resources. On a broader basis, this is the province of external assurance.
    • Non-financial Assurance – ensuring and or developing, the capability and business environment that the non-financial information, business activities and reporting can be given adequate assurance as to their operation in a satisfactory manner. This type of assurance, often more narrowly focussed, is generally the province of internal assurance.
    • Specific Assurance – ensuring and or developing, the capability and business environment that specific issues are or have been addressed in an appropriate manner. Generally achieved through specifically focussed engagements.
  • Business Considerations – ensuring and or developing, an appropriate framework, such that through a combination of internal and external assurance providers, that the Board is able to satisfy itself, other stakeholders and or the public at large, that its combined and applied assurance model, incorporates and optimises the various assurance services and functions, so that taken as a whole and as an integrated operating assurance framework, these support the objectives established for assurance over the organisation, its operations, critical assets and stakeholder requirements.

Coming Soon - Board Dynamics and Performance

Whichever way you care to look at organisations today, it is a fair statement that circumstance and operating environments are arguably more V.U.C.A. – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous – than they have ever been. Further, and of significant concern for Boards, that there appears to be no end in clear sight.

One of the key questions for organisations, large and small, is Performance, in particular, under these most extreme and difficult of circumstance, Leadership Performance.

Organisations and their Boards are under significant pressure to perform at their highest levels. Can you? Are you up to the Challenges? Need Help?

We understand the importance of Board Dynamics and how this may help Boards and their leadership improve their performance, to provide better Board and organisational leadership and ultimately to provide good ethical and effective governance.

We understand the difficulty that organisations and their Boards face in endeavouring to improve their leadership and performance. Where to start? and, How to create a simple, structured and accountable plan for ongoing improvement? – so that they create a road map to be the best that they can be.

Components such as, board structures, board demographics and board director attributes, whilst important, and may be necessary for compliance, are of themselves not sufficient on their own to predict positioning, nor assist in mapping a structured way forward to improving and enhancing board dynamics and ultimately performance.

We will be providing a Unique Tailor-made Solution that delivers a “Board Dynamics and Performance Explorer” assessment.

To be advised on release of this new service, Stay in touch and contact us through our “Contact Form”, making this request.

Remote Electronic Board Meetings and Activities

We have Challenged the Status Quo and Achieved Simplicity to directly benefit you.

We have thought differently, to solve one of the challenges facing Boards online for long term benefit.

We are providing a Unique Tailor-made Solution that delivers Remote Electronic Board Meetings Support and Activities in beautiful simplicity.

Simple to understand, Simple to implement and Simple to use.

We are Boardroom Leadership Governance, Risk and Compliance Experts.

Want to work with us?

We are constantly hearing from our client Boards that:

our Board no longer has “face to face” Board meetings, and we are now meeting remotely online.

This trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

  • The issue is not about Boards having appropriate web conference software. They mostly do.
  • This is about Boards being unable to engage their Directors online with technology, in the way that Boards require, to complete their work effectively and efficiently.
  • This is about Boards not having appropriate online meeting technologies to facilitate the Board’s and its Directors business that are practical, effective, efficient, structured, and goal-oriented.
  • This is about Boards when looking for the positives, adopting and harnessing specific technologies and new services, to not only facilitate their usual business but to leverage their collective and collaborative potential in new ways to increase their productivity and performance.

GRC Consulting understands that constructive Board dialogue and sound solutions are at the heart of good Boards and exceptional performance.

GRC Consulting also understands that those Boards that proactively engage and leverage technology into their Board processes and activities will develop a clear strategic advantage over those that do not.

These Boards will have better structured, simple and effective Board processes that result in shorter time frames, are more cost-effective and efficient, and engage the Board and its Directors in structured decision making. Decision making that is enhanced, defensibly sound, robust, and delivers on the Board’s objectives. Clear winners.

GRC Consulting are Board Room Experts, and we have been leading Electronic Facilitation and Electronic Meetings for Boards for over 20 years. We understand how to leverage these technologies and supply them as a professional governance service to Boards to conduct the usual business of the Board more effectively and efficiently. GRC Consulting provides a Board Service that is a customisable suite of options that we tailor and configure according to the Boards specific needs. GRC Consulting provides the Board with access to its own “Electronic Meeting House” through highly secure, encrypted online access. Each Meeting House can be optionally structured with a variety of “Meeting Rooms”.

Within each Meeting Room, GRC Consulting structures and customises our Meeting Tools so that they are combined and directly tailored to meet each Board’s specific and unique requirements for their long-term success, as follows:

GRC Consulting provides the Board with an Electronic Meeting Toolkit, comprising the following modules, that may be structured and combined in a variety of ways and are capable of flexible configuration to meet the Boards’ specific task and end objective requirements:

Please also refer to our Solution-Blog page and the specific Links below that illustrate recent live examples of services provided to our client Boards with these technologies and tools.

GRC Consulting are Board Room Experts, and we have been leading Electronic Facilitation and Electronic Meetings for Boards for over 20 years.

We leverage these technologies to improve the Board’s performance and, by thinking differently and working with our Boards in Partnership, we help them to solve their greatest challenges for long-term benefit around the concern that “our Board no longer has “face to face” Board meetings, and we are now meeting remotely online”.

We will work with your Board to structure and customise the provision of our Services and these Tools, as illustrated above, so that they are combined and directly tailored in an “Electronic Meeting House”, with highly secure, encrypted online access, containing a variety of “Meeting Rooms” to meet your Board’s specific and unique requirements for your long-term success.

Want to work with us?

We have a deep understanding of the mechanics and requirements of effective Boards.

GRC Consulting utilises and supports the Institute of Directors (IoD) Director Competency Framework. It is a leading and premier, internationally universal framework for Directors and their Boards, built upon over 110 years of the collective knowledge of working with Directors, Boards and leaders worldwide. This framework, therefore, allows an international communication platform and international compatibility approach to addressing Director and Board competency and why we have selected this framework for use in our Board and Director services.

Designed to promote and champion the highest standards of professional Director competence and Director development paths. It is an excellent tool to consolidate the Board level competency landscape and assist Boards in assessing their positioning relative to their future strategy and requirements, the Board Nomination Committee on Director Selection, Board Skills development and a host of related Board and Director needs.

It sets out the Knowledge, Skills and Mindset competencies that a Director needs, as a wide range of working behaviours, to be an effective and high performing board member and assists Directors and the Board in its leadership, management and maximising performance.

Our Competency Assessment Service - Your Benefits.

Key Individual Director benefits:

Based on the international competency framework, the assessment enables individual Directors, amongst other matters:

  • to assess their strengths,
  • identify areas for performance improvement, and
  • plan their professional development.

Key Board benefits:

As a Board, in the highly competitive team sport of organisational leadership, the collective framework assessment enables the Board, amongst other matters:

  • to assess their Board team capabilities,
  • align the Board team to its future organisational strategies, and establish acceptable Board Competency Hurdle  Rates to achieve the highest levels of performance, and
  • professionally manage Board development and training and new Director selection.

Practically and simply, Directors and their Boards are engaged in one of the most highly competitive team sports, with a limited set of players, with high expectations and uncompromising stakes, requiring the highest performance levels, in arguably one of the most challenging periods of business history.

If your Board and its Directors wish to win, they need to understand how to perform at the highest levels and this competitive game’s requirements.

Board Delegation of Authority (DOA)
International Service to all Boards

We have Challenged the Status Quo and Achieved Simplicity to directly benefit you.

We have thought differently, to solve one of the challenges facing Boards and their efficient and effective functioning for long term benefit.

We are providing a Unique Tailor-made Solution that delivers a Board Delegation of Authority (DOA) in beautiful simplicity.

Simple to understand, Simple to implement and Simple to use.

We are Boardroom Leadership Governance, Risk and Compliance Experts.

Want to work with us?

We have a deep understanding of the mechanics and requirements of effective Boards.

We understand and are experienced in structuring a Board’s Delegation of Authority (DOA).

We appreciate the often delicate but practical balance that a DOA must strike. 

A properly structured DOA can be a crucial efficiency and competitive advantage. 

We are uniquely positioned to assist Boards in effectively structuring their governance.

We help Boards structure their Authority, Responsibility, and as appropriate, its delegation through the Board’s Committee structures and the organisation’s executive. 

Structured to be effective, efficient, as a long-term living document, defensible and concise.

The following depicts an illustrative Board Delegation of Authority context diagram.

Board Delegation of Authority (DOA) Context Diagram.

The Key incentives and benefits are:

  • Provides transparency and clarity from the Board to flow throughout the organisation.
  • Clearly defines what authority and limits are being delegated.
  • Clearly creates accountabilities and responsibilities.
  • Promotes the Board’s efficient and effective functioning, its executive, and, therefore, positively impacting the organisation.
  • Properly structured can enhance and act as a competitive advantage.
  • A component at the heart of good Boards and exceptional performance.

The structuring of a Board DOA requires senior-level skills, and we only provide experienced Partner level resources to work directly with you.

A Board DOA requires acknowledgement of the driving forces at play on the Board:

  • Company Law / Legal Frameworks applicable.
  • Regulatory Authority Regulations, where appropriate.
  • The organisation’s founding documents, such as Memorandum / Articles of Incorporation.
  • The organisations existing/required governance framework.

However, the Board DOA is most often more than this. It may also require a discrete and sensitive approach to understanding the power plays and sensitivities, leadership and the key individuals, and achieving an appropriate balance while appreciating that this has to be practical, tethered to the organisation activities, processes and metrics.

This requirement results in and best suited by the provision of a unique tailor-made service. Hence, we only provide appropriate experienced Partner level resources to tailor and configure a Board DOA to your specific circumstances and context. This result supports the Board’s business being conducted more effectively and efficiently, and through this, enhanced organisational performance.

As Corporate Governance Experts, we provide a directly relevant service offering that delivers a tailor-made, actionable Corporate Governance DOA for your Board.
