Interconnecting governance and culture

participate in this essential research to challenge the current understanding of governance

This event is the first for the “Interconnecting governance and culture” Research Programme. Read more about the programme here.

 

 

The programme is part of the Good Governance Research Forum which guides and equips organizations, academics and researchers to connect and establish effective governance practices.

What is this about?

Governance is inherently very difficult to measure (Darko et al, 2014) and the codification of corporate governance has also led organisations to slide towards a ‘tick box’ approach, despite the requirements for ‘comply or explain’ statements in certain countries.

 

The measures that do exist are simply not enough, and in fact, don’t really get at the heart of the question, “how well are both the organisation, and the people within the organisation, ‘being steered’ and how well are they ‘steering’?”.

 

We are on a road of discovery through research and learning. We have developed a model of governance which is both pragmatic and evidence-based, but also affords an ability to begin to quantify more meaningful indices. We are specifically interested in exploring the interconnections between organisational culture, the quality and ethics of decision-making and the operational efficacy and performance within organisations.
