In November 2013, 245 governance professionals from across a range of industries including pensions, healthcare, and the financial services filled in eShare’s governance software survey.
Why this survey?
We wanted to know what people who work in governance think about technology and governance software. To gain a fuller understanding we mapped the results against those from the previous year, thus giving us insight into evolving trends and changes. Some of the results were as anticipated, for example, respondents expect regulation to increase, however others, such as the feelings around sharing information, made us stop and think.
What we found
Good governance is crucial for a well-run organisation. Many believe that the importance of governance is increasing, which in turn will affect the role of the board member. Technology isn’t the only answer, but it is expected to play a significant role in how governance professionals manage their responsibilities, now and in the future.
