issues management
being caught unawares is often a sign of poor governance.  Good issues management systems can minimise the risks and maximise the opportunities
Our issues management services are designed to help clients to improve their ability to respond to the risks and opportunities arising from external challenges and critical developments.

We help clients to determine:

issues management - monitoring, planning, impact analysis and action - setting priorities
which issues are likely to have an impact on strategy and plans - and how - and the extent to which these issues can be influenced or mitigated
the organisation's capacity to anticipate and manage the risks and opportunities
what is being done or said today that could make it easier (or harder) to manage future challenges
how current systems and management processes compare with best practice
and together we work out the best solutions, with a view to helping clients to integrate any strategically significant external issues into their risk management and strategic planning systems.

A form of 'corporate health check', our issues management audits are particularly useful when reputational risks and stakeholder challenges could threaten business, or even affect the achievability

of plans or create new opportunities which competitors could be better prepared to exploit. Such issues could include health & safety, environmental impact, labour practices, business probity or challenges by acitivists.
