DOWNLOAD | Â There are many understandable reasons why Aboriginal communities prefer a portfolio system. Yet that system comes with a host of potential problems, to the extent that an effective partnership between political leaders and staff occurs only rarely within it. Because a portfolio system can imperil the principles of good governance, no option that retains it will eliminate entirely the problems it creates. Only determined hard work and a keen understanding of the potential pitfalls can reverse the tendencies of the portfolio system so that it could work as a means to good governance.
