Corporate Governance Matters, 3rd Edition gives corporate board members, officers, directors, and other stakeholders all the knowledge they need to implement and sustain superior governance in today’s challenging business environments. Authored by two leading experts, it fully addresses every component of governance, reflecting the latest trends and statistics. Updated throughout, it carefully synthesizes current academic and professional research, summarizing what is known, what is unknown, and where the evidence remains inconclusive. Coverage includes: international corporate governance; equity ownership; incentives; labor markets for CEOs; board structures; linkages to organizational strategy and business models; risk management, succession planning, financial reporting and external audit; governance ratings; and alternative corporate governance structures, including family-controlled businesses, nonprofits, private equity, and venture capital. This edition includes expanded coverage of many core and emerging issues, including:

  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)
  • Board effectiveness
  • CEO succession
  • CEO compensation
  • Cybersecurity and risk
  • Shareholder activism, and more
Throughout, the authors’ models and frameworks demonstrate how components of governance fit together, with examples and scenarios illustrating key points. Their balanced approach is focused strictly on two goals: to “get the story straight,” and to provide useful tools for making better, more informed decisions.
