Initiatingpeoplecentricgovernance

Corporate governance is not about governing operations and tactical efforts only; it is or should be equally about governing the evolution of the company. Otherwise the company, no matter how good the governance is, will fail because of a lack of vision and strategic direction.

Governance is like steering-wheel to ensure enterprise running in the right direction, and well head to the destination. Governance is to establish a consensus of what is normal for your organization; manage exceptions as they arise. Update your consensus of normal as the organization changes. Everything else is the detail.

 Can you achieve any level of GRC without people? Is today’s governance over-control, not resilient enough to embrace the change or does it become an impediment to innovation? Culture and awareness are the most critical aspects of GRC, and can only be implemented in humans. You cannot have effective GRC without them. Here are a few human factors for enforcing GRC practices.

There is a critical aspect of leadership in enhancing governance: Governance is a collective mindset; and can be used to raise visibility and awareness for many things that are captured at the different levels of the organization. Passion indeed has a major role to play in conveying conviction and authenticity and builds credibility. A GRC executive who does not truly believe in his/her message will not survive scrutiny! Effective GRC leaders demonstrate passion, savvy people skills, and integrity! They are able to convey a clear message on GRC discipline and direct their organization in the right direction. Organizations should be identifying patterns for good governance and promoting engagement, motivation, and innovation as these are vital aspects of top-performing enterprises in our modern economy.

Corporate governance discipline can fulfill its purpose as a high-level business enabler by providing a structured communication bridge between shareholders/investors and top business leaders such as corporate directors. Effective leaders build governance standards and a set of GRC practices, help to nurture a creative culture with the very characteristics such as strong vision and accountability, improve reliable service/solution deliveries, cost optimization, availability of talents, scalability of operations, or culture cohesiveness, etc.

Innovation, engagement, motivation, etc, are all crucial soft success factors of strong governance: Organizations should be identifying patterns with soft human touch for good governance that sponsors and promotes engagement, motivation, and innovation as these are vital aspects of top-performing enterprises in our modern knowledge economy. Traditional compliance-driven governance discourages innovation. To encourage innovation that has the ability to truly change the course, an organization needs creative people who think out of the box and don't always constrain their thinking with the organizations’ current capability, advocate governance as a discipline to improve the success rate of innovation.

Governance needs to include engagement and motivation because a focus on control and enforcement has the tendency to damage an enterprise's capacity to motivate and engage staff. Likewise for innovation. GRC executives should be able to think strategically and innovatively. Good corporate governance highlights that the board of directors is ultimately responsible and accountable for developing and then sustaining the culture for an enterprise to prosperity meet its agreed goals with the available resources whilst making the most of its opportunities.

Sound governance is to harness people-centricity by improving risk-intelligence: The digital era upon us is about people-centricity. There is a symbiotic relationship between various teams across organizations which leads to realization of higher goals. One point of struggles is governance taking away liberties that are essential to people doing their jobs in a creative way. Governance is important but should be handled and prioritized in such a manner that they're inherent in the way without negatively impacting the working flexibility to deliver premium solutions and to ensure clear and concise information to key decision-makers. It is essential for the entire company to be pulling in the right direction by allocating resources, time, and assets scientifically, policies and standards can be put in the right time and place, and the governance process/mechanism can be embedded into the business process seamlessly.

Autonomy is the tone in running a high-mature people-centric organization. From a people management perspective, with strong governance, appreciate that autonomy and alignment are not rivals but two faces of the same coin, where there is alignment. High mature governance is also high-automated, not all activities within a governance process can be automated but automation certainly makes the process more repeatable and predictable. You can and should automate all areas that don't require human intervention. And in the end, you must understand a task to be automated before you automate it. Strong governance enhances accountability which goes hand in hand with the delegation of authority or power, and accountability is harnessed by autonomy.

Corporate governance is not about governing operations and tactical efforts only; it is or should be equally about governing the evolution of the company. Otherwise the company, no matter how good the governance is, will fail because of a lack of vision and strategic direction. People are both the cause and effect of governance discipline, putting the right people in the right position to practice effective governance discipline for leading progressive changes.
