Stewardship Theory and Board Structure

stewardship theory and board structure special research report Photo by
Using a sample of 714 private family influenced businesses in Germany, we investigate the relationship of goal alignment between owners and managers and the existence of a board of directors.

Making Integration Work Requires More than Goodwill ::

Both projects crossed jurisdictional, geographical and healthcare-provider boundaries and used cooperation and collaboration to work toward the goal of an integrated, quality, multi-disciplinary, seamless, patient-centred approach to cancer care.

Governance emerged as a key determinant of project progress and successful change. Each ... market research, surveys and trends
The Oil Drum | Drumbeat: May 14, 2010
Across the country, seven wind-power zones, each with a capacity of 10 gigawatts, have been approved.

"A lot of management and technical issues will be solved here and large-scale projects in other provinces will be able to learn from that experience."
