These services are available to all organisations, regardless of industry or size

Governance Services

Each organisation has rules and structures that are used to exercise control over its various resources.

Are the rules and structures of your organisation ensuring that you meet your objectives?

Contracting Services

Organisations enter into various agreements as part of the ordinary course of business. Written agreements record the intent of the affected persons (natural or juristic) and, usually, the intent is to provide protection by clearly defining each person’s rights and obligations. However, not all verbal or written agreements are legally enforceable contracts. Do you know the difference?

Do you have contracts in place to protect yourself?

Do you have contracts in place to protect your organisation?



Compliance Services

There are more than 30 categories of legislation applicable and relevant to each South African business. Without a regular assessment of your organisation’s level of compliance, even if that assessment is a self-assessment, your organisation is at risk of being non-compliant.

Are you aware of the 10 most relevant acts that your organisation should comply with?

Are you confident that your organisation is compliant with applicable legislation?

Business Process Design Services

Business processes are the various cogs that allow your organisation to function. Without effective business processes, the policies set by the shareholders, owners, directors and management may not have the intended impact. At this point management may experience a loss of control. This may have a major impact on the achievement of your organisation’s objectives.

Are you confident that your business processes are adequately designed and function effectively?
