Dr John Carver is by far the World’s most published author on board governance. His Policy Governance model for boards is acclaimed by the likes of Sir Adrian Cadbury and Bob Monks, and is used by many nonprofit and public sector organisations world-wide, plus a number of commercial organisations, most notably BP. His seminal book Boards that Make a Difference: A new design for Leadership in Nonprofit and Public organisations is by far the biggest selling board governance publication with over 100,000 copies sold.
Dr Carver has published a paper in the latest edition of Corporate Governance – An International Review, published by Wiley. Titled A Case for Global Governance Theory: Practitioners Avoid It, Academics Narrow It, the World Needs It, the paper essentially puts the case for development of a global theory of corporate governance.
