Good corporate governance is integral to an organisation achieving business and strategic objectives. It promotes clear and transparent reporting lines, effective compliance systems and risk management, stakeholder confidence and is built on an organisational culture of ethics and trust. The role of the company secretary and governance professional, as the ‘gatekeepers’ of corporate governance, is constantly evolving with changes in the way business is conducted, technology develops, judicial decisions are made, legislation is amended and society’s expectations grow and change. It is important to keep up to date with these changes and adopt a whole of organisation governance approach to enhance organisational performance and maintain a compliant and sustainable business. The aim of this course is to explain what governance means and examine how governance frameworks, structures, operations and processes contribute to enhanced organisational performance and the achievement of business and strategic objectives. The key objectives are to: • define ‘governance’ • explain why good governance is integral to the achievement of organisational objectives • highlight the key elements of governance and the ‘whole-of-organisation’ approach to governance • discuss case studies that highlight current issues in governance • identify key legislation, regulations, standards and guidelines that influence corporate governance • discuss the role of the board and directors in corporate governance.
