Governance has become a pervasive and every-day part of today’s business. Deposit a check with your favorite bank and you have just experienced one example of where, and how, the role that governance plays in even our most common of business transactions. When you deposit your check into an ATM, for example, a governance process is deployed that evaluates, authenticates, values, accounts for and credits the proper amount of funds to your bank account. Deceptively simple and convenient, the ATM governance model employs a host of assessments, decisions, procedures, polices, checks/balances, regulations and security measures. The process is reliable and accountable - each time you make a deposit, you will experience the same constant and consistent application of the governance model/process.
