The increased focus and emphasis on the importance and benefits of good corporate governance has placed it at the top of the agenda in all organisations, sectors and countries.
Good governance supports effective decision making based on a clearly defined accountability framework, with robust risk management, compliance, HR, information systems, and modern, professional integrated audit and assurance arrangements. The corporate governance framework provides an efficient and effective good practice framework, embracing compliance and performance excellence towards the success and sustainability of organisations.
