This International Good Practice Guidance provides a framework and principles-based guidance for professional accountants in business and their organizations in evaluating and improving governance. Although most organizations have a governance structure in place, it is often focused on conformance with regulations. This conformance is necessary but a governance structure should also support an organization’s efforts to improve performance. This guidance helps create a balance between performance and conformance.
