Course Summary

The business world is ever-changing, with focus shifting constantly as industries develop and evolve. Increasing requirement for good governance, however, has been a constant focus over a number of decades now. Companies that embrace good governance as part of their core value-system are invariably in a much better position as they scale, or as they expand /evolve their operating footprint to embrace new sectors or geographies.

At its most effective, good governance, is felt throughout the organisation – with shareholders, employees and customers all more likely to engage in a positive and engaging way as the organisation develops. At its worst, bad governance directly contributes to dangerous working conditions or environmental disaster – and very likely, costly lawsuits, and competitive disadvantage.
