The Governance dynamic is quite straightforward in that it suggests organisations take risks that are acceptable to their stakeholders. This means high-risk ventures are meant to provide the high returns and a sustainable business that stakeholders are seeking and vice versa for low risk, low return strategies. If the board and management are open and honest about the way they implement this equation, then all is well.

But where this breaks down, there will be problems – where business risks are not properly managed there may be scandals. You need only type ‘Corporate Scandals’ into the internet for a huge stream of old and newer cases that you can explore. The scariest thing you will find is that corporate scandals, negligence, oversights, violations, safety lapses, cover-ups, misreporting, misrepresentation, fraud, cyber-breaches, wrongdoings, abuse and outright immorality is still with us in large, medium and smaller organizations in just about all sectors, with new cases popping up in the press almost every day.

This eGuide will be useful for:

  • Managers and supervisors.
  • Support teams.
  • All frontline employees.
  • Anyone who needs to know more about the governance, risk and control debate.

It applies to all business sectors; public, private and not-for-profit organisations – globally.
