This book is written for business leaders and those that govern organisations. All high performing organisations excel in achieving 7 organisational outcomes: Accountability, Awareness, Adaptability, Agility, Alignment, Action and Achievement. The enterprise governance framework must deliver on these 7 As through penetrating and integrating three organisational governance layers to drive high performance. These include: corporate governance, strategic governance and operational governance. The book unifies traditional corporate governance, leadership, and strategic management processes, whilst seeking to understand what actually happens on the ground to keep the organisation working and delivering ongoing value to its stakeholders. It synthesises these separate streams into a unified enterprise governance framework, posing some challenging questions whilst providing clear insight into how you implement enterprise governance: something that helps deliver on the 7 As and ultimately high performance. von Vagadia, Bharat
