Better Corporate Governance: Is Systems Theory the Solution?

March 15, 2018

Edward Waitzer, one of Canada’s top corporate governance specialists and a Stikeman Elliott partner, recently published an op-ed that considers the potential of systems theory as an analytical model of the corporation. Recent research by U.S. scholars has shown that this approach can produce a principled corporate governance framework that is dynamic enough to allow corporations to fulfill their true social function as sustainable value creators.

Ed’s article was published by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). Read it, and explore the underlying research, here.
