Governance Indexing & Screening Tool (GIST) 

The Governance Indexing and Screening Tool (GIST) is a diagnostic product from Deloitte which incorporates the firm’s experience in emerging markets, including the CIS. GIST is an in-depth, risk-based governance analysis methodology, aimed at assessing corporate governance at an individual company from the perspective of its potential role in long-term value creation. Inspired by guidelines from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN), this tool measures the overall strength of governance practices along five main axes and identifies opportunities for improvement in each area.
