ABSTRACT

The research looks into the relationship between corporate governance and organizational performance., through the processes of research multiple variables are  examined; the complex set of relationships between a Corporation and its board of directors, management, shareholders, stakeholders, customers, creditors and how effective Corporate Governance can improve the productivity of a firm.

Due to the nature of the research, the methodology used was focused on extensive interview, textbooks, journals and articles. Interview questions were focused on the variables that could affect the performance of a firm; textbooks, journals and articles were used as secondary data to have a past insight on how organizational performance affects a firm.

The research demonstrates that high governance risk correlates with lower performance, and robust governance is associated with more sustained performance. Companies with higher standards of governance were discovered to have higher performance). Further findings indicated that one of the more difficult things in assessing the influence of corporate governance upon firm performance is to take into account the impact of changes in the market: at times of rapid expansion many companies will perform well, in times of recession most companies will find it more difficult to perform.

Recommendations made focuses on improving the relationship between an organization, as a wholes and shareholders, stakeholders, management, creditors, and customers, through proper Corporate Governance. Once this is achieved to a certain degree, it will positively affect the level of performance of a firm, directly or indirectly.
