Over the past few decades, corporate governance has been a subject of mounting
debate and has received considerable attention in the public domain of both
developed and developing countries. Corporate governance is primarily due to
the various past financial scandals, as well as, the major surprising collapse of
corporate bodies across the globe. The study, therefore, assessed the relationship
between corporate governance and the performance of Medium Enterprises in
the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, using primary data from medium sized
enterprises in Sekondi-Takoradi within the Western Region of Ghana. The study
used the quantitative approach and administered 260 questionnaires. Results
from the quantitative part were presented in tables, graphs and chart. The results
revealed that, among the determinants: attraction of investment capital,
sufficient and reliable information and disclosure of information to stakeholders
were the key determinants of corporate governance of medium-sized enterprises.
Moreover, board size and CEO duality had positive and moderate significant
effect on firm performance while ownership structure had a weak effect on the
performances of the medium-sized enterprises within the Sekondi-Takoradi
metropolis. It is therefore, management of medium-sized enterprises should
include corporate governance in their overall strategic plans. There is an urgent
need to train and educate owner/managers of medium-sized enterprises about
the importance of conforming to corporate governance traditions and principles
which includes board size.
