A Global Perspective
About the Book
<p>Corporate governance is central to improving the performance of all institutions and not just commercial entities. All board members aside from their fiduciary or stewardship responsibilities to stakeholders have a much bigger potential. Transition to a corporate governance model that builds value rather than accepting complacency or defence of the status quo can make a very real difference to many, many people.</p> <p> </p> <p>Business and wider-interest media have rightly commented on topics like challenges to the integrity of directors, the transparency of decisions and appointment of directors and directors' fee increases when performance of the entity has been less than satisfactory. Such issues need to be addressed but considered responses by regulators and professional associations alike need to be made within the context of sustainable long-term improvement in board performance.</p> <p> </p> <p>Refreshingly, this is not another normative text on how to run meetings; it hits ‘bulls eye' that directors can make a very real difference to sustainable stakeholder welfare. The chapters in the book do traverse elemental building blocks like board structure, board size, diversity among others, emphasising the evidence from international empirical research into, does this make a difference and what is the consensus view, what is the right structure, right size, right level of diversity, etc. The significance of this volume lies in the underpinning rationale of achieving better governance.</p>
