Today’s organisations face pressure to continuously address mounting regulatory changes and growing market scrutiny while striving to increase customer confidence, drive competitive advantage and optimize stakeholder value.

In Nigeria, the effects of economic crisis have been far reaching, bringing corporate governance to the fore as businesses seek to establish a regional footprint and build their reputation at a global level. The general view is that organisations and companies in Nigeria are not mature in improving the opportunities inherent in ensuring compliance, financial tracking, managing strategic/enterprise risk and driving internal audit. Combined with the heavy burden of industry regulation, Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) practices for most companies are becoming part of everyday life. Therefore, these companies are looking at improving their corporate governance practices not just to achieve compliance but to help them improve their businesses and be positioned for competitive advantage.

Whether you need help and guidance at the board, C-level, or enterprise risk and compliance level, Execution Edge helps clients in improving corporate governance practices and structures in their chosen industry. We also have experience working with corporate boards to undertake meaningful self-assessments and improve their oversight processes.
