Bad governance gets its fair share of press coverage – and rightly so – when there’s a governance failure in a large corporate everyone feels the fallout.
Hearing The heartbeat
Painting by numbers is an impersonal experience for any artist and the outcome created is generic. I don’t see many people proudly nailing this type of painting to their wall.
The best governance experts want to create something that your company can be proud of – so we take time to understand the full picture of a company before starting to apply any colour. We listen to the heartbeat of an organisation. We talk to people at all levels so that we are able to deliver something that fits the company’s culture and strategy.
Give employees the green light
Choosing the right colours
Good governance experts help create strategies that support employees to do a better job, boost the company’s reputation and make external finance more accessible. All of our “paintings” are unique – they have to be – otherwise you won’t nail them to your wall and they become another useless piece of paper at the bottom of your drawer.
There’s no excuse for applying governance processes without thought. At best it wastes the time of the person trying to implement them. At worst, it costs the whole company time and money, alienates employees and frustrates senior managers. Wasting people’s time will only happen once and when you lose your voice in the boardroom it’s almost impossible to rebuild.
Untapped potential for SMEs
Paintings can fade over time
In a growing company the governance framework needs to evolve too. Just as outdated technology holds back progress, a company outgrows its governance. To stay agile governance needs to be reviewed regularly. Seen in the wrong light, this could be viewed as an ongoing cost, but in reality it is a fresh opportunity to identify additional streamlining saving more time and money. It’s an opportunity to enhance your painting.
