    Abstract

    The whole issue of ‘governance’ is not the highest profile or at first blush most fascinating of topics. Nevertheless I was and remain convinced that appropriate and effective governance is critical to good decision-making; and that as devolution in Scotland both widens and deepens so it the gaps and inadequacies in our existing system and structure of governance are becoming increasingly apparent. These deficiencies imply a risk of sub-optimal decision-making at such a critical stage for our economy and nation more broadly.
