Governance in simple terms means the process of decision-making and its implementation in collective problem situations. The term 'governance' had become popular especially since 1990s with the usage of the term by international donor agencies such as the ADB, UNDP and World Bank. For example, in developing countries, governance systems have many challenges, including non-availability of information to the people, lack of accountability, poor management of the public sector and lack of appropriate legal frameworks. Governance should not just emphasise routine implementation of policies and programmes - but making the entire activity accountable, democratic, participative, and responsive to people's needs.
Our strategy and core competency lies in assembling and managing highly qualified multi-disciplinary teams and engaging with a range of public, private sector, non-governmental and citizen stakeholders for timely and quality completion of projects, TSC Global's "Governance group" is comprised of leading governance experts, with experience in governing countries (holding a range of ministerial portfolios), financial institutions, regulators, international corporates, international NGOs and more. We have experts who have trained elected representatives of countries, others have run public service training, and more who have helped with regulators, stock exchanges, banks and more. These subject matter experts are supported by our other experts as required.
TSC Global‘s standard methodology entails building trustful relationships and helping to identify practical solutions for complex problems that our team of experienced experts may face during project preparation, and the implementation and delivery of high-quality results — often in tight deadlines.
As with any transformational process we will develop a shared understanding of what needs to be developed by identifying what each element of an overall goal can be achieved when, over what timeframe, by whom, doing what. Careful planning is required. The first Step taken in the process is as important as each of the other ones, especially as it will lay out the initial plan and approach for the transformation goal.
As part of our process we will focus on:
- Identifying and building: on the achievements of our previous work and knowledge in the area.
- Promoting broad participation: Through our research process and stakeholder engagement, we will identify the challenges, needs, hopes and aspirations of various stakeholders.
- Engaging in and maintaining quality communications: by ensuring that our consultants work in very close cooperation with each other and our counterparts.
- Ensuring the transfer of knowledge: by providing focused and informative advice and stakeholder engagement that not only address the issues but include practical means to resolve any issues arising as they happen, and in the design, and the application, for future projects.
Our transformative governance process will examine:
Governance Project Examples
- Accountability: making all the organs of government accountable for the performance of functions.
- Participation: understanding that people are the key to good governance - not only the beneficiaries of good governance but also the agents of it.
- Transparency: moving from the traditional secrecy in governance to sharing of relevant and appropriate information.
- Effectiveness and efficiency: effective and efficient service delivery from the organisation being governed.
