Why did we select Bukkie to serve on our international panel of judges?
Bukkie played a key role as judge in the 2016 edition of the competition -asking probing questions around MCOM’s capital structure, regulatory and political risk challenges, and the impact of the group’s strategy on its financial and non-financial performance -as such, she brings invaluable experience in judging a global case study competition set within the context of a listed multinational in the emerging market.
Our case company -AMANGO, faces a range of strategic challenges that impact on its internal control, risk management, governance architecture and ethical climate. First, a group wide strategic performance measure relied upon to evaluate and reward executives has put into question the adequacy and effectiveness of its internal cost and performance measurement control systems; second – operational risk and industrial action in AMANGO’s operations in Australia has opened its operational and safety management systems into questions, and it seems the rot in systems of safety governance will require a serious evaluation of the control environment (‘tone at the top’’). Plans to undertake a corporate reconstruction and reorganisation exercise may open the business to serious internal control, risk management, governance and ethical challenges that needs at least one expert on the panel to independent evaluation how the teams respond to such challenges. Bukkie is uniquely qualified and brings these credentials to the panel -and as such, we were only too humbled to secure her service on the panel of judges!
