Corporate Governance Framework - Structuring organisation through good governance

The rising fear of corporate failure and mis-governance has put pressure on management and boards globally to reinvent strategies aimed at strengthening corporate governance. It is imperative for management to improve and expedite the organisation‘s effectiveness. Most often there exists a dichotomy between the staff and management in some organizations, which sometimes leads to conflicts and discord within the organization. Also, boardroom politics and shareholders responsiveness have led to incessant altercation.
