Considerable attention has been given to the topic of governance and its relevance to private and public sector organisations. However, little attention has been given to the impact of adopting different governance models on societies and nations which are unaccustomed to alternative ways of working. With both an enterprise level and a societal level of analysis in mind, this book explores the governance impact on both the structure of organisation and performance of organisation, and also examines what are the likely stakeholder reactions and social repercussions of the emerging encroachment of the shareholder value philosophy championed by Anglo-American enterprises on stakeholder societies such as France, Germany, Japan and the Scandinavian countries.
