Thesis abstract:

Governance is a tool to monitor the behaviour of the system and ensure it stays within the bounds of the system objectives. Governance is probably about monitoring outcomes regularly and bringing the system back onto course before it diverges too far (Ireland, 2016). While governance models have been the subject of recent study in the management context, a lack of understanding remains regarding to the different complexity levels. In other words, reductionism has been the main way of thinking and approaching governance models. As my recent research findings clearly shows that complex system governance is decentralised and autonomous teams exist. Thus, the necessity of a system governance model according to the degree of complexity is unavoidable (Bakhshi et al., 2015; 2016).
