Revision with unchanged content. Governance has taken center stage. Scandals at corporations and Public Sector Institutions have fueled the criticism that organizations are disconnected from those they claim to serve. While intent on supporting their respective stakeholder groups, these scandals demonstrate that some organizations fail to understand - or take to heart - their mandate. How can organizations reconnect with their stakeholders in order to operate efficiently and in a sustainable fashion? What can the stakeholders expect? Benjamin Perlzweig provides a brief overview of organizational governance and makes the case for governance best practices based on the principles of accountability, participation and transparency. Explaining the particular benefits to Public Sector Institutions and NGOs, he provides guidance on how to assess the value created and justify the costs. This book is targeted at stakeholders of Public Sector Institutions, NGOs and corporations, including professionals that are employed by any such organization. In addition, it is of interest to those who are concerned with the improvement, sustainability and long-term efficiency of Public Sector Institutions, NGOs or corporations.
