King IV Corporate Governance Training

King IV encourages organisations to move beyond compliance to crafting actions that are appropriate to the organisation's context, and which will move them closer to achieving the goals enshrined in its 17 principles. In so doing, King IV is helping organisations realise the benefits of corporate governance. While King III called on companies to apply or explain, King IV assumes application of all principles, and requires entities to explain how the principles are applied – thus, apply and explain. King IV is principle- and outcomes-based rather than rules-based. Corporate governance should be concerned with ethical leadership, attitude, mindset and behaviour. The focus is on transparency and targeted, well-considered disclosures. King IV recognises information in isolation of technology as a corporate asset that is part of the company’s stock of intellectual capital and confirms the need for governance structures to protect and enhance this asset.
