Category: Governance

Businessdictionary.com defines Governance as the establishment of policies, and continuous monitoring of their proper implementation, by the members of the governing body of an organisation. It includes the mechanisms required to balance the powers of the members (with the associated accountability), and their primary duty of enhancing the prosperity and viability of the organisation. This can also be referred to as corporate governance.
