  • Introduction

    The dawn of 21st century coincided with the Enron scandal, and produced far reaching ripples in the commercial arena. Subsequent sufacing of Worldcom and Omnimedia scandals further shook the belief in compliance robustness of capitalistic institutions of the developed economies. New efforts evolved globally to strengthen the “Governance Processes” in the post Enron commercial world.

The listed companies and public sector companies are subject to Corporate Governance oversight; and not-for-profit institutions will soon follow.
