The Definitive Guide to High-Performance Corporate Governance

Fully updated for the latest research, trends, and regulations, Corporate Governance Matters, Third Edition, offers comprehensive and objective information for everyone seeking to improve corporate governance--from directors to institutional investors to policymakers and researchers.

To help you design highly effective governance, David Larcker and Brian Tayan thoroughly examine current options, reviewing what is and isn't known about their impact on organizational performance. Throughout, they take a strictly empirical and non-ideological approach that reflects rigorous statistical and research analysis and real-life examples. They address issues ranging from board structure, processes, operations, and functional responsibilities to institutional investors, outside stakeholders, and alternative forms of governance.

New discussions of:

  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) activity and ratings
  • Stakeholder interests
  • CEO activism
  • CEO misbehavior
  • Cybersecurity risks

Extensively revised coverage of:

  • Executive compensation
  • Leadership and succession planning
  • Director recruitment, evaluation, turnover, and more
