Corporate Governance and Internal Control

Track record

IPO readiness
A client preparing for an IPO reached out to us in need of support to implement an internal control framework shaped in accordance with stakeholder’s expectations, applicable regulations and the organization’s size and maturity level. By setting up a well-designed yet pragmatic framework for the client they could focus on their other IPO-readiness tasks. As a result, the client was not only compliant from a legal and stakeholder perspective, but also had greater internal control and excelled in maturity level.

Restructuring governance model
A mid-sized client which had experienced rapid growth in recent years required an expert review of their governance model, including risk management and internal control. This resulted in Transcendent Group creating a “management framework” a fit-for-purpose governance model with a much clearer overview of the group, its activities, its approach to risk management and internal control, including interactive links to more detailed documents, to minimize the maintenance required.

Review of risk management processes
A government agency had an ambitious risk management approach but experienced difficulties aligning all requirements. Several things needed to be taken under consideration: 3 or 4 different ISO-standards, common practices for project management (with both internal and external project managers), requirements stipulated by the government, annual strategy, and planning processes, as well as GRC-system limitations to mention a few. After a review and assessment based on the COSO framework and experience from several organizations, we managed to challenge current procedures, bring concrete improvement areas on management’s table and by that initiating a change process for more efficient and value-added risk management and corporate governance
