Corporate Governance in Russia Book Review:

This book explores discussions and practice around corporate governance in Russia from the early 1990s until 2018. It covers three major aspects of corporate governance theory and practice: a vision of corporate governance in Russia in the context of global trends and challenges, the general perception of corporate governance in Russia, and the real nature of Russia’s corporate community from the viewpoint of its corporate governance practices. It provides a unique complex analysis and detailed description of how corporate governance has been perceived by both Russian regulators and the business community, and how it has been applied in Russian companies. This analysis covers the period of over 25 years: from early attempts at directing transfer and implanting the Western model of corporate governance to the nascent Russian big private business, up to the period of resurgence of the state as the dominant player both in Russian society and its economy at large. It gives an understanding of what corporate governance is in Russia in the days of "sovereign democracy" and confrontation with the West. It explains how cultural, political, economic and institutional factors have shaped corporate governance in Russia. The authors provide insights into such aspects of Russian corporate governance framework and practices as regulatory philosophy and enforcement, ownership structure, the role of the state, the impact of unfriendly domestic business climate, how the value of corporate governance is perceived in Russian context, etc. Predominantly, the book paints an interesting picture of how the "sovereign corporate governance" model has been shaped in Russia. This book will be useful not just for experts in corporate governance and investors, but also for those who have an interest in modern Russia at large.

A Primer on Corporate Governance Book Review:

This book is a primer on corporate governance for large, publicly held companies in the United States --the system that defines the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in a corporation, such as the board, managers, shareholders, and other stakeholders, and spells out the rules and procedures for making decisions on corporate affairs. As with any complex system, corporate governance functions best when all of its constituent elements work in harmony, when each performs its assigned role, with the right incentives, properly aligned interests and the right tools for the job. The turbulent history of corporate governance in recent years is testimony that this has not always been the case. The American system of corporate governance has been confronted with significant challenges in the last twenty-five years. Many of these challenges can be traced to the rapid, often unpredictable changes that have occurred in the global competitive environment which have fundamentally changed - domestically as well as abroad - the opportunities and risks American companies face every day. Others have their roots in broader societal shifts such as changes in attitude towards the value and role of free markets, a growing recognition of the importance of environmental concerns and a clamor for greater transparency and accountability in public as well as private organizations. At the same time, the corporate governance landscape itself continues to evolve. Shareholding has become concentrated through institutional intermediaries who exercise their fiduciary duties with a process of shareholder communications, resolutions and director elections. The composition of boards of directors continues to evolve as they pursue more independence, greater diversity, and stronger global representation. Newly adopted executive compensation reforms are focused on better aligning the interests and incentives of corporate management with those of long-term shareholders. Some of these changes have occurred organically, many more have been the result of outside forces, including landmark federal legislation, new state rules and codes, and interpretive judicial decisions. The bottom line is that the entire corporate governance process has been under evaluation. This is both healthy and essential for the future of our economy. It signals a widely shared belief - by corporate directors, shareholders, the markets generally and the regulatory community - that corporate governance matters. The importance of this recognition can hardly be overstated. As a wave of corporate scandals in the late nineties and the recent global financial crisis remind us, the efficacy of corporate decision making and our regulatory systems directly affect our well-being. Sound corporate governance not only pays by producing value for all stakeholders of the firm but also, even more importantly, it is the right thing to do--for investors, other stakeholders, and society at large. In other words, sound corporate governance is not just good business; it is also a moral imperative. A good number of the books written on corporate governance focus on legal issues - the rights and obligations of the various stakeholders under Federal and State laws - or take the perspective of individual or institutional external shareholders. This book is positioned differently; it approaches corporate governance from an executive perspective and is designed to help the reader become a more effective participant in the corporate governance system--as an executive dealing with a board, as a director, or as a representative of a company''s other numerous stakeholders. The book is organized in two parts. The first looks at corporate governance from a macro perspective. It begins with a description of the various components of the U.S. corporate governance system and a brief survey of its history. It then asks the fundamental question ''Who owns the corporation?'' to frame a discussion of different schools of thought about a corporation''s responsibilities to its shareholders and society at large. Next, we focus on the legal framework that defines a board''s basic responsibilities and obligations and look at current trends regarding board size, composition and structure. As part of this discussion we briefly review a number of major governance reforms adopted in recent years such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, and recent SEC rule changes. The second part of the book focuses on the workings of the board itself and its principal challenges: CEO selection and succession planning, the board''s responsibilities in the areas of oversight, compliance and risk management, the board''s role in strategy development, the issue of CEO performance appraisal and executive compensation, a board''s challenges in dealing with external pressures, unexpected events and crises, and finally, a board''s most difficult challenge--managing itself.

Evolutions in Corporate Governance Book Review:

In a world where the implications and consequences of corporate actions and decisions are potentially far-reaching and lasting, ethical standards − their observance and their breach − must be part of the language of business conduct, whether in the context of corporate transgressions, regulatory effectiveness, terms of engagement between business and their stakeholders, or the metrics used by investors in assessing performance and risk and understanding long-term value. This critically important book proposes a new paradigm for understanding, developing and maintaining standards of corporate governance. Its point of departure is not a position along the diverse paths of traditional corporate governance and regulatory theory, law and practice, nor specific questions of how to institute, implement and observe policies and practices that function as proxies for good governance. Instead, it starts with the idea of framing governance generally, and corporate governance specifically, as a matter of conduct that is guided by a set of fundamental ideals and principles. Evolutions in Corporate Governance attempts to answer the wider question of how to re-imagine a framework within which ‘good’ corporate governance − that takes account of and is responsible for the social, environmental, ethical as well as legal and economic dimensions of business conduct − is addressed alongside issues of profitability and competition, in the face of forces of globalization and business influence that are testing the limits of what can be accomplished by traditional law and regulation. Dempsey contends that meaningful change in behaviour will only come when there is a corporate governance framework that explicitly encompasses both law and ethics.

Complementarities in Corporate Governance Book Review:

Corporate governance reform is currently on the agenda in the European Union, the United States, Japan and in emerging market economies. This book takes a fresh look at the reform debate by focusing on the trade-offs involved in reconciling the diverging interests of shareholders, creditors and managers. It shows how effective corporate governance systems exploit complementarities between the incentives generated by the capital structure, the ownership structure, investor monitoring, takeover threats, and management compensation to minimize the sum of all agency costs facing the public corporation. The book combines a general theoretical treatment with a detailed study of the institutions of corporate governance in Germany, Japan and the United States and a critical assessment of recent reforms.

New Corporate Governance Book Review:

In the 5th edition of this successful book Martin Hilb presents an innovative and integrated approach to the theory and practice of corporate governance. Central to this approach is a set of instruments - developed and tested by the author - that can be used by boards to offer effective strategic direction and control to their organizations. The board instruments can be readily applied to the selection, review, remuneration and development of board members, and for conducting board self-evaluations. This new approach to corporate governance is based on four guiding principles: keep it situational, keep it strategic, keep it integrated, and keep it controlled. Together, these principles form the basis of an integrated approach to all key aspects of corporate governance. The main arguments in each section are supported by conceptual models, practical board tools and case studies, making the book ideally suited to board members, senior managers and post-graduate students. This new edition is updated throughout the book and includes a new chapter on mobile integrated board management and documentation information systems.

Corporate Governance Matters gives corporate board members, officers, directors, and other stakeholders the full spectrum of knowledge they need to implement and sustain superior governance. Authored by two leading experts, this comprehensive reference thoroughly addresses every component of governance.

Compensation, equity ownership, incentives, and the labor market for CEOs. Optimal board structure, tradeoffs, and consequences. Governance, organizational strategy, business models, and risk management. Succession planning. Financial reporting and external audit. The market for corporate control. Roles of institutional and activist shareholders. Governance ratings. The authors offer models and frameworks demonstrating how the components of governance fit together, with concrete examples illustrating key points. Throughout, 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.
