Research Summary

Governance, Accountability, and Performance for Social Enterprise

by Herman B. Leonard

Description

This project examines the relationship between governance structures, accountability relationships, and performance outcomes for social enterprises. Most previous work in this area has examined these topics separately, or in pairs; the purpose of this project is to explore the appropriate linkages and relationships among the three. The working hypothesis is that more carefully designed integration of systems of governance, accountability, and performance will improve all three.
