Good governance has become an increasingly hot topic amongst those that run and direct organizations. The reason?

For profit, not for profit, government, or crown corporation – every organization needs to examine, benchmark and practice good governance. This introductory course will take you through the principles of good governance, how they should be applied in real life to all kinds of organizations and what you as a manager, executive, director, or advisor needs to do to help your organization practice good governance.
