In addition, your SME members can rely on specialized publications, free benchmark studies of fees, and open board mandates.

Governance Maturity Scan

Map out the challenges facing your SME through the GUBERNA Governance Maturity Scan. Based on a short questionnaire (which only takes about 15 minutes), this tool gives you a clear overview of the challenges your SME faces and explains how governance can help you address these challenges.
