About the Book
Boardroom Secrets: Corporate Governance for Quality of Life describes how the global economic crisis is above all else, a corporate governance crisis. Recent high-profile corporate failures have clearly demonstrated that good governance is the key to the sustainability of the corporation. Good governance is a lot more than compliance. It is a culture and a climate of consistency, responsibility, accountability, fairness, transparency, and effectiveness that are developed throughout the organization (CRAFTED principles of governance).
The book focuses on the behavioral aspects of good governance and helps address questions such as:
- How confident are you that the Board of Directors of your company is providing the right kind of guidance and oversight?
- Do you think that in your company the right balance is achieved in the areas of short-term vs. long term performance, risk vs. reward, and ethical considerations vs. market practices?
- Is your Board effective in terms of critical but constructive questioning and identifying and addressing key risk areas?
- What is your Board doing to improve its own performance?
