Board Reporting

DWS are fully versed in the provision of appropriate information to the right stakeholders. Following corporate governance sessions, it is often identified that appropriate information is not presented by management to the board or committee. Reasons for this includes poor access to the right templates and lack of sufficient reporting by the property management system. Key aspects of our board reporting development includes:

  • Conduct an audit of current board and committee report mechanisms.
  • Identify appropriate outputs from the property management system.
  • Develop a standardised template that can be adopted by management to extrapolate relevant information from the property management system.
  • Design outputs from the template that incorporate both management and board level information.
  • Incorporate budgets and/or industry benchmarks to derive key performance indicators.
  • Ensure areas of operational risk are identified.

DWS combine a range of skills that include specific exposure to the hospitality sector to derive the relevant information as well as strong financial modelling skills in order to produce a template that is operable by management.

I was relaxing over the Easter weekend, reading the Courier Mail, when two articles took my attention. Seeing articles such as these comes as no surprise, however what continues to surprise me is the lack of general knowledge or commitment to robust Corporate Governance principles.

Strategic Planning is still one of the most critical activities that any business can undertake if they want to succeed. It provides a sense of direction, outlines measurable goals, and is a power tool that helps guide day to day decisions and evaluate progress for changing approaches as you move forward.
