Corporate Governance is concerned with holding the balance between economic and social goals and between individual and communal goals. The aim is to align as nearly as possible the interests of individuals, corporations and society. — Sir Adrian Cadbury
Recently there has been considerable interest in the corporate governance practices of companies, particularly since the high-profile collapses of large U.S. firms such as Enron Corporation and Worldcom. This is also happening on the background of legislative and regulatory changes, an increase in the scope of audit and other internal control and risk management activities and
increased public scrutiny. Ultimately, it is companies’ practices that determine whether corporate governance delivers benefit or not.
Successful businesses don’t get to the top by chance. They get there with the right people driving them forward with the right ethos, in the right market. Good corporate governance can help companies achieve success faster as well as ensuring that the company is attractive to external investors and purchasers.
As they say, an organisation or company rises or falls on the shoulders of its leadership. This places a great responsibility on the board and senior executives of any company. Inevitably, the leadership must have the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding of the issues around governance and the good practices that have led successful companies to great heights.
