Julie Garland McLellan, author of five books on governance as well as the corporate governance newsletter Directors Dilemma, said this about Gang Politics in her December 2019 Directors Dilemma Newsletter:
“This short book looks at the governance of governments. It provides many pithy definitions of phenomena that we observe and frequently name inaccurately.
I particularly liked this one: “Governance is a confusing and very misunderstood subject that is at the root of both organizational performance and accountability. Governance is fascinating, very poorly understood broadly, and a substantial influence on global economic and political issues. Governance is the structure, relationships and processes of authority, responsibility and accountability in a business, organization or government.”
Gang Politics is a book written about government and politics from a governance perspective analysing why government dysfunction happens and perhaps help us understand what we can collectively do to ensure our governments serve us, its people. Although corporate governance gets very few mentions in the text, the ideas are easily extrapolated and applied to the commercial context – especially for government owned companies.”
We really appreciate Julie’s review, she is a highly respected in governance education and training.
For any of you in the region of Sault Ste Marie Ontario Canada, remember we have a Gang Politics book signing and discussion event Saturday December 14 from 11:00am to 4:00 pm.
