SPN has a three-tier structure consisting of the Board, secretariat and a pool of consultants.
- The Board determines the strategic direction needed to achieve its purpose and objectives as a business enterprise and to implement its values to ensure that it survives and thrives. The Board also ensures that the procedures and practices are in place to protect the company’s assets and reputation. In addition, the SPN Board monitors and evaluates the implementation of strategies, policies, management performance criteria and business plans.
- The secretariat implements policy decisions and day-to-day affairs of the company. SPN maintains a ‘thin’ secretariat to manage its affairs.
The pool of consultants consists of diverse skills and nationalities. The diverse background of the team is intended to bring in a broad range of perspectives, insights and skill sets to every assignment and ensure that our clients get value for money.
