There appear to be several quite different discourses that may impact the governance processes of Asian third sector organisations. The first is the so-called ‘modern’ approach: the corporate governance approach derived from the corporate world of business. It refers to the capacity of the Board and management to drive the company forward within a framework of effective accountability (Pricewaterhouse Coopers). Notice the use of the word ‘drive’. This word implies giving direction from above, but also a sense of forcing the organisation to maximise its production.
