The Internal Auditing Handbook Book Review:

The first edition of The Internal Auditing Handbook received wide acclaim from readers and became established as one of the definitive publications on internal auditing. The second edition was released soon after to reflect the rapid progress of the internal audit profession. There have been a number of significant changes in the practice of internal auditing since publication of the second edition and this revised third edition reflects those changes. The third edition of The Internal Auditing Handbook retains all the detailed material that formed the basis of the second edition and has been updated to reflect the Institute of Internal Auditor’s (IIA) International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. Each chapter has a section on new developments to reflect changes that have occurred over the last few years. The key role of auditors in reviewing corporate governance and risk management is discussed in conjunction with the elevation of the status of the chief audit executive and heightened expectations from boards and audit committees. Another new feature is a series of multi-choice questions that have been developed and included at the end of each chapter. This edition of The Internal Auditing Handbook will prove to be an indispensable reference for both new and experienced auditors, as well as business managers, members of audit committees, control and compliance teams, and all those who may have an interest in promoting corporate governance.

Directors Remuneration Handbook Book Review:

"I enjoyed reading it - which I did from cover to cover and refer back to it too!" Chris Spencer-Phillips, MD, First Flight Non-Executive Directors How much, when to pay, what to pay for and how to motivate directors are key questions to ask when a detailed framework of knowledge is required. Directors' Remuneration Handbook, 2nd edition provides this framework, the information and tools to answer these questions. It explains the complexities of directors' remuneration in simple terms, providing examples of best practice and up to date market date as well as a source of reference for key legislation. Directors' remuneration lies at the heart of the debate on effective corporate governance. This is the issue, above all others, in which directors face a conflict of interest. Whilst UK companies are considered to have very high standards of corporate governance and reporting, the economic crisis forced UK companies to consider where things had gone wrong and why. Whilst there has not been a raft of regulation following the economic crisis there have been significant consultations on the importance of UK companies to focus on the issues that matter to their long term success and to their shareholders. Disclosing clear, relevant information on these issues in company reporting is necessary if shareholders are to make well informed decisions in their role as company owners and to establish a clear link between a company's strategic objectives and the criteria for payments to directors. Covers the following key legislation and case law: The new Directors Remuneration Report Regulations (DRRR); New law on votes on remuneration policy and implementation; New EU rules on Banks remuneration; ABI and NAPF best practice guidance.

Governing for Results Book Review:

BEST SELLER This BEST SELLIING book provides a comprehensive guide to effective governance for board members and their senior executives. The author offers a new framework for understanding boards and proposes practices that boards can use to fulfill their stewardship responsibilities, strengthen board performance and improve organizational effectiveness. The book discusses the basics of governance - what it is and why it matters; essential duties and liabilities of the board and its members; and the essentials of an effective board/management partnership. It provides detailed guidance on the seven primary areas of board responsibility: i) mission and planning; ii) financial stewardship; iii) human resources stewardship; iv) performance monitoring and accountability; v) community representation and advocacy; vi) risk management; and, vii) managing 'critical events' and 'transitional phases'. It discusses the legal structure of nonprofits, who owns them and how to organize for accountable governance. Governing for Results will assist boards in dealing with recurring issues around board and committee structures; their terms of reference and effective use; and job descriptions for key officers. The discussion of board development, board management, decision-making and organizational culture will prove invaluable in helping many boards deal with these complex issues. A discussion of the essential principles of governing for results includes a logical framework for planning and evaluation. The book provides tools that can help boards decide which governance practices will best fit their particular organization and strengthen their performance as a governing body. It outlines the factors that may interfere with a board's ability to adopt appropriate governance practices and presents twelve keys to successful governance that were identified through research. It offers a sample letter of agreement for new board members, and samples of an agenda for board meetings, an oath of confidentiality, a values statement, conflict of interest and donor confidentiality policies, a template for financial monitoring, self-assessment tools for the board and individual directors and a basic guide to 'Rules of Order' for conduct of meetings. It also provides outlines for comprehensive by laws and governance policies, and references to additional resources. Although this book is intended to fill a gap in the resources available to volunteer members of nonprofit boards of directors, much of its guidance will also be useful for directors of public and private sector corporations. The strong research base underpinning this work also makes it of interest to researchers, academics, and consultants. It adds perspective to the debate about governance models and offers guidance to board members with respect to board structure, responsiblities, governance practices, and problems that commonly afflict boards. It is designed as a user-friendly guide for busy directors and executives who want concise, compact and well-researched answers to perennially troubling questions about governance, the role of boards and their relationship to staff.
