Based on his extensive background in consulting and governance innovation, Dr. Li will discuss the topic of governance and management within the context of the recent situations at KCRC. With the help of his assistants, Dr. Li has prepared for us a time-series case study on KCRC and will help students explore the intricacies and nuances of corporate governance, particularly how we define and appreciate effective and superficial governance of public bodies and NGOs.
