Part of the Management for Professionals book series


Based on the results of board evaluations conducted in various business sectors, the following main weaknesses of current corporate governance practices have bee n identified:

- most national corporate governance guidelines propose a “one size fits all” approach which is dangerous; it may support good govern ance, but it does not guarantee that the governance of a firm will be come great;

- there is a lack of strategic direction in much of board practice;

- board selection, appraisal, remuneration and development often lack integration and professionalism;

- and board level.
