What Is Corporate Governance & How Can it Impact My Project?

Corporate governance is a system of rules, practices and processes used by a corporation to direct and control its actions. It is a balance between stakeholders, management, customers, suppliers, financiers, government and the community. It includes action plans, internal controls, OKRs, performance measurements and corporate disclosures. The board of directors is elected by shareholders and appointed by other board members to represent the shareholders. Insiders and independent members make up the board of directors, with insiders being major shareholders, founders and executives and independents having experience managing or directing other large companies.

The board of directors are not directly involved in the day-to-day operations of an organization, but they are responsible for oversight and planning. They can delegate some duties to board committees, which have the time and resources to dive deeply into issues that call for expertise. Corporate governance can have a positive or negative effect on an organization, such as casting doubt on the reliability, integrity or obligations of the organization to its shareholders. It also creates a rule by which to measure a corporation against a transparent metric, so shareholders, directors and officers are clear on direction and incentivized to act in accordance with the rules. Most companies desire a high level of corporate governance, even more than mere profitability, as environmental and ethical behavior is more and more a part of good business.
