Jeito is an Australian consulting firm founded by Martin Gray in 2001 with a focus on improving corporate governance.
From his early involvement in the development of compliance system software, it became apparent that compliance was only part of effective corporate governance and that it was up to individual boards to decide on the governance arrangements most appropriate to their company’s circumstances.
How best to achieve this? First begin by helping the board evaluate its performance and its corporate governance arrangements.
In 2004, Board reviews were costly to administer, time consuming to participate in, and delivered variable outcomes. The time was ripe for automation and so the first of Jeito’s Web based, Board reviews was launched.
Since then Jeito has gone global, reviewing more than 200 Boards across Australia and the UK and looking for further overseas opportunities.
Over the past two decades, the Jeito reviews have evolved with a number of significant innovations to stimulate the depth of responses by participants and to drive insights that will make for meaningful action plans.
Jeito has also responded to the spoken needs of its clients, with additional on-line services such as an on-line induction training course in corporate governance principles for new directors, employee and customer surveys and has used the board reviews to initiate an innovation dialogue that can be followed by a facilitated workshop to develop a suitable innovation framework.
