Governance programs

Major capital investment outcomes can make or break organisations. Effective governance of major projects is imperative for success, particularly in an uncertain economic environment.

Governing major capital investments create challenges which are distinct from the range of corporate governance issues organisations face. Effective governance requires the accountable executives to have the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure projects reliably create maximum value for your organisation.
