GOVERNANCE


Governance requires broad vision and focus on the goals ahead.  Sometimes the path ahead is unclear and the environment is troublesome.  Our services help officials establish a strong decision-making environment.  Wise research increases transparency and understanding of current issues, and this leads to wise and informed decision-making.

“Imagine a meeting environment where diverse opinions are shared and respected.” 

~ Shari-Anne Doolaege, President, Sage Analytics Inc.

“Leaders need good INFORMATION and healthy INTERACTIONS in their governance/decision-making environment.”
