We need to adopt a good governance culture at all institutions in order to improve our quality of life. A sustainable future requires a global education initiative for responsible global citizenship. Argüden Governance Academy was founded based on this idea that is laid out in “Keys to Governance” by Dr. Yılmaz Argüden.

Quotes by Global Thought Leaders for Keys to Governance

“This is a marvelous book written by a well known and widely respected modern day renaissance leader and thinker. What Yılmaz Argüden has to say in this work is deeply rooted in a lifetime of remarkable experiences. On page after page one encounters important insights. This book is a tour de force of a kind that comes along only rarely. In these particularly difficult transition years we have here an oasis of calmly, thoughtfully, and carefully explained wisdom and suggestions about how to think and act. A must read.”
John H. McArthur, Dean Emeritus, Harvard Business School

“Yılmaz Argüden has focused on two very important aspects of governance which haven’t gotten enough emphasis in my opinion: the need for trust and the need to build a culture of governance to improve sustainability of organizations. This book brings both issues to the fore and is a very good move in the right direction.”
Frank Brown, Dean, INSEAD

Gerhard Schröder, Former Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany (1998-2005)
