What is corporate governance?
Corporate governance is a system of rules, practices and processes by which a company is directed and controlled. Corporate governance essentially involves balancing the interests of all the stakeholders of a company, such as shareholders, management, customers, suppliers, financiers and government. Since corporate governance also provides the framework for attaining a company's objectives, it encompasses practically every sphere of management, from action plans and internal controls to performance measurement and corporate disclosure.
