dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: This research seeks to examine the relationship between governance and the sustainability of non-profit organisations and companies. It argues that good governance is the overarching internal factor within an organisation that influences its long-term sustainability. This research expands this argument further by identifying six main principles of governance and showing by means of a case study how their application (or lack thereof) affected the organisation. It argues that good governance practice is not a luxury for well-established non-profit companies that are required to comply with their registration requirements, but that good governance can be and should be practised by all organisations including small voluntary associations if they wish to become sustainable. It concludes with a discussion of the findings from the case study and practical recommendations for non-profit organisations and companies in South Africa that are struggling to achieve long-term sustainability.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: My navorsing poog om die verhouding tussen bestuur en die volhoubaarheid van nie-winsgewende organisasies en maatskappye te bepaal. Ek argumenteer dat goeie bestuur meer is as ‘n oorkoepelende interne faktor in ‘n organisasie wat ‘n impak het op sy langtermynvolhoubaarheid. My navorsing brei hierdie argument verder uit deur die identifisering van ses vernaamste beginsels van bestuur en wys, deur middel van ‘n gevallestudie, hoe hul implimentering (of die gebrek daarvan) die organisasie beinvloed het. Ek argumenteer dat goeie bestuur praktyk nie net ‘n luuksheid is vir goed gevestigde nie-winsgewende maatskappye wat bloot moet voldoen aan net hul registrasievereistes nie; maar dat die goeie bestuurs praktyk kan en moet toegepas word deur alle organisasies, insluitende klein vrywillige verenigings as hulle volhoubaar wil word. Ek sluit af met ‘n bespreking van die bevindings van die gevallestudie en praktiese aanbevelings vir nie-winsgewende organisasies en maatskappye in Suid-Afrika wat sukkel om langtermynvolhoubaarheid te bereik.af_ZA
