This chapter explores the role that governance can and does play in promoting or conversely impeding organizational change. Most studies of organizational change focus on leaders, strategy and processes, very few consider the impact of governance. This chapter examines the diverse ways in which governance arrangements can influence the approach to change in organizations.
