GovernRight Build Workshops

    Based on a combined governance experience of more than 40 years, we have developed a workshop (supported by our unique online technology GovernRight Build) to help Build the governance content necessary to support Good Governance.

    This implementation workshop guides participants through the foundations of embedding modern governance into their organisation. It then leads participants on the Path to Good Governance and examines the GovernRight Framework, the 7 Pillars of Good Governance and the Fourth Quadrant in the context of their organisation. Finally, participants work through a board’s Four Perspective Mindset.


    Especially designed for organisations with minimal executive support

    Developed for organisations who are early on their Good Governance journey, the workshop is supported by an online technology, the combination of which helps organisations to develop their Governance content:

    • Board Charter;
    • Strategic Plan;
    • Emerging Governance Plan; and
    • Risk Appetite and Governance Risk Register;

    With best practice templates by industry to get you started, the GovernRIght Build solution is a fast path to a Good Governance framework for your organisation.
