Consider a publicly listed company whose business performance has been criticised publicly and, using its annual report, reference documents about the company (e.g.
analysts? reports, in-depth interviews and articles, documents on company?s website) and write a report about its governance protocols and practices. (This could
include independence of directors, length of tenure of directors, other responsibilities of directors, etc.).

Whichever option you choose your report should include:

A brief description of the organisation and its background/industry. This description should be a short section only.
An outline of the bases or criteria for the review of the organisation?s governance. For example, mention which standards or guiding principles are relevant for the
review, discuss their importance and why it is appropriate for you to use them.
A critical review of the organisation?s governance applying the relevant concepts, principles, standards or other tools and techniques learnt during this subject, in
accordance with your discussion above.
A list of recommendations for suggested improvement based on your review. The recommendations should only be a short section in the overall report.
