    Description: A governance indicator for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) is presented. The indicator adopts stakeholder theory in selecting its elements, which also include a few general governance principles as well as board features. The paper reviews main governance indicators treated in the literature, which are mostly applied to publicly traded firms. It then proposes a specific indicator for SMEs which, in general, are private. The indicator takes into account - in its structure - the evaluation style of National Quality Awards, as a pattern to measure, by assigning points, a great number of variables. Governance variables included in the indicator are grouped into areas, themes, dimensions and elements, in order to make them operative and measurable. Measurement is performed by means of a questionnaire - reproduced as an appendix - with nominal and interval scales. Maximum scores for each question are assigned following multiple attribute decision theory. The article concludes with reflections on the measurement problem in the social sciences and final thoughts on the characteristics of the proposed indicator. The paper, based on Yacuzzi (2007), is part of an on-going research project. In this new version, several sections of the original work have been improved, others have been deleted, and the questionnaire has been modified in order to incorporate the experience of different users.

    Description: This paper is a primer on corporate performance, corporate governance, and their interrelationships and measurement systems, with particular focus on Small and Medium- Sized Enterprises (SMEs). This is the first report of a larger on going research project. In the domain of performance measurement the paper describes the trend from financial to non-financial measures, as well as a taxonomy of measures and the impact of the TQM movement on measurement practices. In the domain of governance, governance as a general concept is presented, followed by the more specific concept of corporate governance. Four theories of corporate governance are explained, along with literature findings on the relationship between corporate governance and corporate performance, with reference to both works on large firms and works on SMEs.

    Description: The use of simple governance techniques at a hypothetical family business (called ABC) will be beneficial. Good governance leads to a better relationship among stakeholders, increases the effectiveness of family institutions and board work and activates unknown potential at the firm through better principles and practices. Tools proposed are: (1) A new and flexible family business governance indicator, developed for this paper; (2) Hoshin management; and (3) Effective meeting technology. The three techniques interact in a systemic mode. The indicator allows measurement of how family business governance evolves through time in a company and facilitates comparison between different companies' governance. Most importantly, it is a checklist and roadmap to better governance. Hoshin management is a generic planning method that can be used to build a governance improvement plan. Effective meetings facilitate planning and control and in this sense they are a tool for governance improvement. This paper is mainly based on the following sources: IFC (2008), Yacuzzi (2005 b, 2007, 2008, 2012), Yacuzzi et al. (2011), Naiberger & Yacuzzi (2009). To an important extent, the paper's organization is based on Yacuzzi (2012).
