Governance  & Transformation

Governance & Transformation Group Charter:

Too much value is lost through weak governance, in particular of large and complex contracts and relationships. We will identify why governance is weak, and how to strengthen it, beyond the carefully drafted words in the contract.

Note that many large and complex relationships require a transformation of how the work is performed today, hence the necessary integration of “Transformation.”

We plan to bring practitioners (lawyers, clients & outsourcers) and academics together to capture a maximum breadth of perspective.

Group Mission/Vision:

We will identify the causes of value leakage and help define best governance practices that drive economic and strategic achievements.

Bench marking a service

Hi All Is there any standard in terms of stakeholder satisfaction in IACCM contract Management? We have sent out surveys (which our stakeholders had input into regard the questions they wanted to score us on) We have received some great feedback and suggestions for improvements. Whilst I think a satisfaction score of 81% is very good, I have nothing to compare it with. I know all survey are different in terms of the questions, but to put this result into some context it would be good to understand if any work has been done on what good looks like in terms of satisfaction scores in other companies? I would love to hear any views people are happy to share, as my Director would like to share these results with our board but unless we can put them into context in terms of best practice, they are just a score which doesn't tell the wider audience that much without the wider context! Kind Regards Jan
