Non-profit organizations and businesses in the semi-public sector, such as care organizations, educational institutions and housing corporations, often face the same far-reaching changes, such as more exposure to market forces, a different role for government and new forms of collaboration. Often there are issues concerning codes of conduct, how to give shape to the supervisory task or the remuneration of directors. What is more, many institutions are faced with a need to restructure, whether in the short term or the longer term.
