Good governance, achieved by integrating, coordinating and balancing the five functions of governance will lead to good management outcomes, but governance functions are different from management functions.


  1. Determining the objectives of the organization
  2. Determining the ethics of the organization;
  3. Creating the culture of the organization
  4. Ensuring compliance by the organization
  5. Designing and implementing the governance framework for the organization [1]

  • Owner’s Representative Role
  • Managing a P.M.O.
  • Project Controls & Reporting
  • Financial Controls & Reporting
  • Contract Management & Controls
  • Quality Assurance
