Strengthening Corporate Governance: A New Age of Entrepreneurship in India
Corporate Authorship TCB
Unfortunately many Indian companies still regard corporate governance largely as a “box-ticking exercise.” In these organizations, governance will remain a subject of mere academic interest unless recognition of its importance permeates the board and management and then cascades down throughout the firm.

This report details ways companies can see corporate governance as an ongoing process of conduct rather than a compliance tool.
