Corporate Governance in a Disparate World
Whilst there are plethora of issues facing governance in a disparate world, poverty, food and water security, human rights, global warming, fraud and corruption many of them are impacted by something that is universal – corporate decision-making. When we make poor decisions that do not represent the best interests of the company we create inefficiencies that lead to other consequences and sometimes, corporate collapse. In the ever increasingly intertwined global economy this can become contagious as evidenced in the global financial crisis This chapter argues for governance beyond mere box ticking and for a new approach to the pervasive obstacle of existing entrenched organisational hierarchies and their associated 'pyramids' of 'power based' decision-making.
