An online ethics training programme that explores ethical dilemmas in a professional environment.
This innovative programme is delivered via e-mail, and therefore does not require employees to spend training time away from their desks. Participants respond to ethical dilemmas by voting online, and receive anonymous feedback about their own choices benchmarked against their peers. Feedback can be either generic or customized based on the client’s ethics policies. Upon completion of a pre-determined number of dilemmas participants receive a certificate of completion.

The Board Game is a corporate governance simulation that is fully integrated with actual board meetings. Directors are presented with a real-world corporate governance case study, based on a case that ended up in a court of law.
The case study appears on the board agenda and discussion at the meeting is facilitated by the chairman (hence no need for an external facilitator to be present). The facts of the case are presented in such a way that the board is forced to have a debate and make a decision as if it were a standard agenda item.Read more

The board evaluation methodology takes cognisance of local and global developments in corporate governance, and aims to improve board performance by focusing on issues that are material to both the company and the industry.

Assistance based on a proprietary conceptual framework that aims to assist corporations to conceptualise, develop and implement effective corporate responsibility programmes. It is underpinned by the need to have a thorough understanding of responsibility, with specific reference to the distinction between (but not separation of) the moral and business case. Based on the framework, clients are guided to take responsibility, and to engage in activities that relate to internal processes (governing responsibility, managing responsibility and reporting on responsibility) and respond to the external activities of regulating responsibility.
