Deloitte Governance Framework

For those interested in the topic of corporate governance, these are dynamic times. The events of the past decade have led to the publication of a mountain of articles and research reports focusing on different aspects of governance, such as the role of the board, executive compensation, strategic oversight, and so on. However, many boards of directors still struggle with several fundamental questions, including:

  • What is the role of the board in the company’s corporate governance program?
  • Exactly what should we be doing in the critical areas of oversight such as strategy and risk?

Designed to ease this frustration, the Deloitte Governance Framework offers an end-to-end view of corporate governance and forms the basis for the tools that help boards and executives quickly identify potential opportunities to improve both effectiveness and efficiency.
