Corporate Governance

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) defines the purpose of corporate governance as "to contribute to the creation of an environment of trust, transparency and accountability necessary to promote long-term investment, financial stability and business integrity, thereby enabling stronger growth and a more inclusive society".

Updating governance, keeping it there and marketing it.

In recent years, the corporate governance requirements for companies and other organizations have increased continuously and have also become more diversified. In addition to legal requirements, there are corporate governance codes that place much higher expectations on the control and supervision of institutions. In addition, investors, rating agencies, lenders and other stakeholders (employees, associations, etc.) often define their own expectations of the corporate governance of institutions.

Public Governance

While the corporate governance of listed companies is now adequately established, it is often substantially underdeveloped in companies controlled entirely or predominantly by municipalities, states or the federal government.

For this reason, numerous public administrations have adopted their own Public Governance Codes. The aim is to provide their own companies with a set of rules for efficient and good corporate governance.

Clear guidelines for work processes in the supervisory bodies also strengthen the public administrations and help the reputation.

Governance & Values supports the Federal Government, the Länder and the municipalities through blended learning, content, coaching and the corresponding preparation of mandate holders.

Sports Governance

Sport is the special focus of the public. In contrast to private-sector companies, misconduct in the field of sport develops as if under a burning glass.

Poor governance in clubs and associations not only burdens one's own finances and reputation in the public eye, but can also call state funding into question. In the UK, a commitment to good governance is already required of clubs and associations in a sports governance code.

In two studies (2016 and 2018), which we carried out together with the Hamburg School of Business Administration (HSBA), the state of corporate governance in the Bundesliga was examined in detail.
With the help of our coaching for mandate holders, especially in associations and federations, we can contribute to ensuring that associations or federations maintain the necessary expertise in the respective supervisory body, that the structure is adapted to the needs and sends a positive signal to all stakeholders.
