Corporate governance

Jump to navigationJump to search


A framework that

(i) provides guidance on strategy, including assessing risk
(ii) ensures effective monitoring of management and
(iii) makes certain that managers are accountable to stakeholders.

The purpose of corporate governance is to facilitate effective, entrepreneurial and prudent management that can deliver the long-term success of the organisation.

Among other concerns, corporate governance includes management structure, employee relations and executive and employee compensation.


Comparable frameworks in non-commercial organisations.

In the non-commercial context the term 'governance' (without the 'corporate' part) is more common.
