All businesses and companies want to flourish, be effective and it their targets, while being profitable. In today’s marketplace, it is almost impossible for organizations to have continuous and long-lasting impact and success if they do not possess the requisite internal structures and policies that govern their activities.
Corporate Governance is all-encompassing: it impacts every facet of an organization, from strategic decision making, to leadership and leadership decisions. It’s primary focus, however, is boards of directors, how these boards conduct their business, and how they govern organizations.
Organizations in modern times are held to high standards by both clients and investors. Both parties want to see organizations operating with integrity. Corporate governance helps organizations display their positive traits as well as their good intentions. Armed with this information, clients and shareholders can hold organizations accountable for their actions and behaviors, which in turn keeps organizations in check.
Simply putting together a corporate governance policy will not ensure success. Good and successful corporate governance is built on a foundation of transparency, accountability and trust.
This course will teach participants practical and effective methods of filling gaps in corporate governance and equip them to develop and implement good and successful corporate governance policies.
