Evaluating and Improving Governance in Organizations. This guidance provides a framework and principles-based guidance for professional accountants in business and their organisations in evaluating and improving governance.

Although most organisations have a governance structure in place, it is often focused on conformance with regulations. This conformance is necessary but a governance structure should also support an organisation’s efforts to improve performance. This guidance helps create a balance between performance and conformance.

Integrating Governance for Sustainable SuccessThis report analyses how professional accountants in business can support their organisations and increase performance by integrating governance into the key drivers of sustainable organisational success. Using case studies from around the world, the report illustrates that good governance is about more than the protection of stakeholders' interests or compliance with regulatory requirements.
