Modern Governance and Accountability

TGN possesses direct experience with a wide range of models and approaches. All levels of your organisation are included in the process to modernise your governance structures and to implement effective accountability mechanisms.

managed and synchronised.

  • Assessing current approaches in relation to new environmental requirements;
  • Designing the appropriate governance and accountability model;
  • Identifying the model's strategic implications in relation to business planning, human resource management needs, communications and relationship management; and
