Tom Morrison Essay Prize

ICSA: The Governance Institute is running an essay writing competition called the Tom Morrison Essay Prize. Now in its third year, the competition launched this Monday (8 Jan) and will run until Monday 19 March 2018. It is open to ICSA students, law students and business students, recent graduates and people at the start of their governance careers (2 years max in a role).

This year’s essay question is as follows:

It has been said that governance failures usually happen within the subsidiary structure of a large business, but all governance focus tends to be at the main board level. Is the focus on the right area and, if not, what improvements could be made?

Your answer need not be restricted to the corporate sector. References to other sectors (public sector, not-for-profit organisations, etc.) can be used to support your argument.
