We train organizations & individuals
how to adapt to meet future challenges with
Dynamic Governance.*

*Governance is the system by which an organisation is controlled and operates,
and the mechanisms by which it, and its people, are held to account.
Ethics, risk management, compliance and administration are all elements of governance.

Old Business Models have proven Insufficient For Empowering And Engaging All Stakeholders And Inefficient In An Ever-Changing Environment.

For example, artificial intelligence (AI) fails in content moderation by removing natural context awareness and human insight. AI drift is a REAL PROBLEM that companies don’t account for, or even admit to. GovernanceAlive can help Web 3.0 communities develop and build better content moderation guidelines than AI.
