Case Study # 5

Governance & Standards

Good governance defines how an organisation makes decisions and standardises operations across an organisation. This decision making process cannot happen in isolation, and relies on data insights and clear organisational structure to truly be effective.


  • Integrate data insights into governance decision making processes
  • Standardise process governance at an organisational level
  • Map governance channels across an organisation to streamline decision making and promote transparency.

The Business problem


A Human Resources division of a global mining company implemented a new operating model which promoted customer self service and dramatically reduced their service cost per employee. As part of the transformation, the organisation drafted new governance structures and processes but struggled to operationalise this new way of working.
