Governance can be defined as the system by which institutions are directed, controlled and held to account. The first two requirements or attributes of governance are more traditional in nature. It is the last one which has attracted more attention in the recent days. Governance demands accountability to achieve maximum returns. Accountability has increasingly occupied center-stage with the increased democratization of enterprise which has meant greater demand upon the leadership. It has been observed through extensive research that good governance is the real driver for growth and development or societal improvement. This is true of a family, a business, a religious institution or even a country.
The so called Eastern Tiger States have moved from less economically endowed nations to developed states within a generation. This leap forward has been attributed largely to good governance. Competent, focused, proactive leadership when driven by passion and integrity will accelerate and enhance high productivity and human achievement. On the other hand, retrogressive corrupt and purposeless leadership will cause the most endowed human endeavor to stagnate. Governance therefore must remain at the center of every human endeavor. Good governance aims to help the emergence of quality leadership to guide enterprise to prosperity; good stewardship of institutional resources; efficient application of resources for public good; improvement in people’s standards of living; wealth creation; and positioning institutions for greater performance. It is in this context that the theme for this year’s ICPSK Annual International Conference is “GOOD GOVERNANCE: TRANSFORMING INSTITUTIONS FOR HIGHER PERFORMANCE".
