Eskom is a South African company that has developed from a state utility under apartheid into an efficient globally competitive state-owned enterprise. In 2001, Eskom received the Power Company of the Year title at the Financial Times Global Energy Awards Ceremony in New York. This book draws on the growing body of knowledge about corporate governance in state-owned enterprises. It locates Eskom's experience in that context and argues that a state-owned enterprise can be run as efficiently as any other. The key to performance excellence lies in good governance and the authors reveal how a public company can implement good governance practices when government is the major shareholder.
