Abstract

Whereas a clinical approach to organizations has a well-deserved predicament, narrowing down such viewpoint to governance issues in organizations shows that there has been, so far, an almost complete neglect of this field of enquiry, on which this paper intends to make a contribution. Firstly, the basics of the clinical approach will be expanded on, moving on next to conflicts of interests. Afterwards, we are going to feature organizations as conflict systems. Next, the clinical approach will be applied to conflicts of interests among stockholders, directors, managers, creditors, and other stakeholders, drawing up from this context of analysis consequential elements of diagnosis and treatment for distinctive ailments pervading the governance of organizations.
