No business can ignore the risks related to improper corporate governance today. We only need to turn to the recent examples provided to us by prominent companies such as Enron, HealthSouth, Tyco and Worldcom to see the disastrous outcomes when proper governance is not in place. It can mean significant decreases in equity values, declines in credit ratings and even ultimately force companies to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors. These failures are often traced back to weak internal controls.
In our increasingly unpredictable, competitive business environment it is important to take a holistic approach to Corporate Governance. Companies must embrace change by not only focusing on the risks that can threaten value, but also the risks a company can take to create additional value. Today companies should remain steadily aware of risk and compliance as they utilize people, processes and technology as tools in maintaining control over chosen risks.
