Beschreibung

"Corporate Boards" - Dieses Buch analysiert, welche Rolle Vorstand und Unternehmensführung in einem Unternehmen im 21. Jahrhundert spielen sollte und welche Eigenschaften den Vorstand als Gruppe erfolgreich und effektiv machen. Die Autoren gehören international zu den Top-Führungskräften und sind anerkannte Experten auf dem Gebiet der Corporate Governance, d.h. der verantwortlichen, auf langfristige Wertschöpfung ausgerichteten Unternehmensleitung und Unternehmenskontrolle. Hier erläutern sie, wie Vorstände die gängige Praxis ändern, Grundsätze aufeinander abstimmen und Unternehmen der New Economy erfolgreich leiten können. Sie befürworten einen neuen Maßstab für die Bewertung von Leistung und Effektivität der Vorstandsarbeit, der sich - aufgrund der umfangreichen Veränderungen in der Unternehmenslandschaft - nicht mehr am "Shareholder Value" orientieren, sondern über den "Stakeholder Value" definieren sollte. "Corporate Boards": Neue Strategien zur Wertschöpfung für die Unternehmensspitze - eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für Angehörige der Vorstandsebene und Unternehmensführung.

Pressestimmen

"The most comprehensive analysis of board practices available. Research results and real world examples that will help CEOs and directors build the corporate boards of the future. Effectively combines thoughtful analysis with action steps that make governance practices come alive." --Rich Teerlink, chairman and CEO (retired), Harley Davidson"This lastest book by the team of Conger, Lawler, and Finegold-which draws from Korn/Ferry's ongoing research on the policies and practices of corporate America's largest boards-is a comprehensive, thoughtful examination of the challenges faced by boards today, and what they can do to become more effective in meeting the needs of their diverse stakeholders. This is a valuable tool for anyone who now serves on a board-or is interested in learning more about the responsibilities inherent in assuming a directorship role." --Richard M. Ferry, chair, Korn/Ferry International"A defining piece of work in the emerging field of corporate governance. Based on solid and comprehensive research, the authors have provided a balanced and thoughtful road map for enhancing board effectiveness. Every CEO in the country should read this book and keep it on his or her desk." --David A. Nadler, chairman, Mercer Delta Consulting"The single best, data-based book on corporate goverance. Should be required reading for every senior executive and board member." --Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration University, of Southern California, and author of Managing the Dream
