CORPORATE GOVERNANCE OVERVIEW

Corporate Governance (CG) is a modern concept in business management where organizations refer to models, tools and techniques to safeguard and direct their businesses. This aims to maximize the value of the entity and increase the trust, credibility and enhance stakeholders’ benefits.

After several global financial crises, the business world has realized the importance of good CG and how current shortcomings in governance practices have led to excess financial and operational risks. To address this matter, regulators around the globe have started issuing enhanced rules and regulations that guide companies to implement an effective CG Framework.

Global CG legislators and professionals recognize that organizations worldwide are facing significant challenges in transforming the concept of CG from theory to practice.

Accordingly, organizations require a qualified position who could play a vital strategic and supportive role in implementing a practical and adequate CG framework and be able to manage the compliance risk through advanced tools and professional techniques.
