Why Governance Matters


Governance is a defining challenge for the 21st century. Existing models - predicated on cultures of compliance in the business world; power imbalances, lack of legitimacy and ineffectiveness in government - are breaking down in a world of hyper globalization, ubiquitous information, rapidly accelerating change, and leveling hierarchies. How we govern ourselves as businesses, governments and societies to become sustainable, adaptive, inclusive, and legitimate will determine whether and how we meet the world's greatest challenges in the years ahead.
