Effective Corporate Governance in Not-for-profit Organisations

Reynolds, Steven T (2014) Effective Corporate Governance in Not-for-profit Organisations. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

This thesis explores corporate governance effectiveness in not-for-profit organisations by identifying and developing the types of performance indicators used in the not-forprofit sector. Only by agreement, between all affected parties, on the criteria is one able to assess corporate governance effectiveness. This thesis contributes not only analytically but also by the provision of several empirical datasets: they are contributions from interviews with expert practitioners, action research data available from an individual board that developed its own performance indicators and a review of published annual reports. Two main research questions were posed. The first was: What are the performance indicators of effective Australian not-for-profit corporate governance? And the second question was: What is the process for determining the performance indicators of effective Australian not-for-profit corporate governance?
