This publication is a supplement to Stop-Winlock’s Toolkit 2: Developing Corporate Governance Codes of Best Practice and it focuses on how to use scorecards to measure the observance and implementation of such codes. It provides practical guidance and a step-by step approach on how to develop a corporate governance scorecard, presents different approaches to scorings based on the experience of different scorecard users in different countries, and shows how scorecards are adapted to local circumstances and the local corporate governance framework.
