Jim Brown The Imperfect Board Member. Discovering the Seven Disciplines of Governance Excellence

Praise for The Imperfect Board Member «Finally! A book about boards that isn't boring!» –Patrick Lencioni, author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team «Everyone wins with good governance–countries, corporations, and community groups. In a compelling style like no one before him, Jim Brown helps leaders understand the keys for boardroom excellence. The Imperfect Board Member ought to be required reading for people on every type of board. The great thing is that it won't need to be required–it's such a fun book, every leader will want to read it.» –Jim Balsillie, chairman and co-CEO, Research in Motion; chair, Centre for International Governance Innovation «I know no board members, myself included, who won't learn valuable lessons from Jim Brown's book The Imperfect Board Member. Don't miss it!» –Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One-Minute Manager and The Secret «Thanks to Sarbanes-Oxley, boards have become active. The Imperfect Board Member clarifies sharply the lines of what boards need to do and what management needs to do. The time has come for the two groups to work together and yet keep independent.» –Ram Charan, coauthor, Execution, and author, Boards That Deliver «The Imperfect Board Member by Jim Brown is a highly perceptive, eminently readable, engagingly human book on how boards and directors can improve their performance. In a breezy conversational style that uses dialogue invitingly and often, the author explores with sensitivity and a light touch not only the standard ingredients but also the more subtle nuances of excellence in both corporate and not-for-profit governance.» –William A.

THE PRACTITIONER'S GUIDE TO GOVERNANCE AS LEADERSHIP The Practitioner's Guide to Governance as Leadership offers a resource that shows how to achieve excellence and peak performance in the boardroom by putting into practice the groundbreaking model that was introduced in the book, Governance as Leadership. This proven model of effective governance explores how to attain proficiency in three governance modes or mindsets: fiduciary, strategic, and generative. Throughout the book, author Cathy Trower offers an understanding of the Governance as Leadership model through a wealth of illustrative examples of high-performing nonprofit boards. She explores the challenges of implementing governance as leadership and suggests ideas for getting started and overcoming barriers to progress. In addition, Trower provides practical guidance for optimizing the practices that will improve organizational performance including: flow (high skill and high purpose), discernment, deliberation, divergent thinking, insight, meaningfulness, consequence to the organization, and integrity. In short, the book is a combination of sophisticated thinking, instructive vignettes, illustrative documents, and practical recommendations. The book includes concrete strategies that can help improve critical thinking in the boardroom, a board's overall performance as a team, as well as information for creating a strong governance culture and understanding what is required of an effective CEO and a chairperson. To determine a board's fitness and help the members move forward, the book contains three types of assessments: board members evaluate each other; individual board member assessments; and an overall team assessment. This practitioner's guide is written for nonprofit board members, chief executives, senior staff members, and anyone who wants to reflect on governance, discern how to govern better, and achieve higher performance in the process.

Lars Merle, Tobias Schachner Designing a new industry award for service excellence competition in retailing

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This thesis resolves the need for an industry award for service excellence in retailing, based on a comprehensive framework to foster management quality. A service excellence framework is developed and the design for a new service excellence award is proposed. The proposed framework is based on the Industrial Excellence Award. In addition to the original four fundamental processes a fifth component is introduced: the customer. To complete the framework, the seven components of management quality known from the IEA are adopted. This framework is the structure for the self-assessment questionnaire that will be the core of the new „Best Retailer” service excellence award. Through an extensive literature review, success factors and empirically tested items for questionnaires were identified and assigned to the corresponding sections in the questionnaire. The result is a collection of questions that - if appropriately considered by management – can help introducing service excellence in the retailing industry. The modus operandi of a possible future award competition is suggested to stay close the example of the IEA in order to leverage the existing brand. This should help to popularize the new award, to create outstanding showcases quickly, and to disseminate excellent management quality in the industry.

There has never been so much pressure on nonprofit boards of directors to achieve a level of accountability that meets public and stakeholder expectations. Member-serving association boards may be especially challenged by their more complex affiliate structures and a greater emphasis on representative governance. But what does the journey to good governance look like? Markedly different from existing board development books, this modern approach focuses less on the behaviors and qualities of «high-performing boards» and more on the stages and processes that directors and their staff used to transform their boards. Based on research funded by the ASAE Foundation, the book fills a gap in the governance literature by emphasizing diagnosis and problem solving, using the actual tools and activities implemented by 85 transformed associations. Combining the credibility of scholarly research with lively and compelling stories, tools, and teachable moments, this book is designed to help associations and other nonprofit organizations achieve the entire journey to good governance, from first to last steps.

Riccardo Altenburg The determinants of roles and responsibilities of boards of directors in subsidiary companies

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 8,0, VU University Amsterdam , course: Boards of Directors / Governance / Strategy, language: English, abstract: Despite the growing importance and the current trend of a globalizing economy, relatively little is known about the roles and responsibilities of subsidiary board of directors and how they are influenced by various drivers. This thesis focuses on and investigates the roles and responsibilities of a subsidiary board and which firm-related (internal) and environmental-related(external) drivers could potentially influence these roles. From the existing literature on corporate governance four major roles are derived for the SB, namely a monitoring, advising, internal and external role. Qualitative data from 8 in-depth interviews with board members of a global subsidiary company provided a clear set of responsibilities in line with the four board roles. Furthermore, in this case firm growth, acquisitions and the organization at the parent level are seen as major internal drivers of board responsibilities. Economical downturn, industry changes and technological innovations are seen as critical externaldrivers of board responsibilities in a subsidiary company. Additionally, this thesis shows that in times of economical recession the board tends take on a moremonitoring focused role. Smaller firms and acquisitions lead to a strong internal focus whereas the changes...

Summary of The 4 Disciplines of Execution by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and Jim Huling | Includes AnalysisPreview:The 4 Disciplines of Execution is a guide for businesses to reliably commit to the goals and plans they set, authored by associates from FranklinCovey, a management consultancy. Rather than focusing on what a business must accomplish to be successful, the four disciplines establish how to accomplish those things.One reason commitments tend to be abandoned in business is that new projects and goals are less urgent than the day-to-day tasks of each individual employee, which the authors call the “whirlwind.” The key to commitment fulfillment is for new tasks to take up only a small portion of each employee’s time, but for that employee to be held accountable for completing them.The first discipline is to settle on one or two wildly important goals (WIGs).

Thomas Heimann Maintaining a Global Communication Network

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Communications - Multimedia, Internet, New Technologies, grade: 1.3, Bielefeld University, course: Politikwissenschaft, language: English, abstract: The question at heart of this paper is how society manages to maintain what has become its most important communication network, the Internet. The coordinative mechanisms necessary to achieve this are regarded as governance mechanisms. Since 'governance' is understood as a property of social systems and 'Internet infrastructure' relates to a technological system, two system/environment relations need to be observed: technology as the environment of society and society as the environment of technology. This circular system/environment relationship complicates the notion of governance, because governance (the establishment of social coordination) shapes and limits Internet architecture (the basic design principles of the Internet platform) and Internet architecture shapes and limits governance. Thus, before governance mechanisms regarding Internet infrastructure can be addressed, some preliminary considerations have to be made regarding the interaction between society and technology in general. This topic has been the subject of many academic publications covering disciplines such as sociology, political science, economics and network engineering; but the solutions proposed usually tend to either oversimplify the problem or use the jargon of complex systems to paraph...

Cornelis A. de Kluyver A Primer on Corporate Governance, Second Edition

This long-awaited second edition 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, 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 a testimony that this has not always been the case. 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, with much updated material, 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.

Academic Paper from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Accounting and Taxes, , language: English, abstract: The significance of good governance in ensuring effective tax administration in the public sector and enhancing tax collection is an undeniable fact that is generally accepted. Yet, there is scanty empirical evidence on the actual application of the principles of good governance in the structure and operation of public sector institutions and its outcome, particularly in the tax administration system. Hence, purpose of this study is to investigate the measures taken to institutionalize the principles of good governance within the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority (ERCA). More specifically, the study assessed the level of conceptual understanding and commitment to the principles of good governance, measures taken to create ownership of the principles; the extent to which the ERCA put in place organizational policies, standards, strategies and structures to institutionalize good governance, and measures taken to improve human resource capacity to implement the principles of good governance. In terms of scope, the study focuses on the assessment and collection of taxes from category "C" taxpayers in selected sub-city branches of the ERCA. The research is essentially a case study that uses quantitative and qualitative data gathered from primary and secondary sources to inform its findings.

Intermediate Examination Paper from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,2, University of St Andrews, language: English, abstract: Corporate Governance (CG) has always been a critically viewed topic and is being increasingly discussed after the Enron and WorldCom scandals, which had a worldwide outreach (Petra, 2006, p. 107) or major cases of poor corporate governance in Asia such as the Peregrine or the CA Pacific Securities Case in the 1990s. On this account, stricter rules have been introduced and existing regulations were re-examined in many markets in order to restore the public confidence in corporate governance systems and the transparency and accountability of organisations. The corporate governance system in Hong Kong is characterised by unique features differing from the Anglo-American framework. The extensive amount of family-controlled companies and mainland firms would suggest a deficient corporate governance system. In spite of this, a study by Nan, Kang and Kim (1999) comparing corporate governance among Asian economies indicated that Hong Kong has significantly higher corporate governance standards and equally more sophisticated legal systems governing the protection of property rights than other countries in that area.As regard to the structure of this coursework, initially, the general theoretic foundations of corporate governance are explained in chapter two. Thereafter, the specifics of the market in Hong Kong will be e...

Sebastian Schilling Does Corporate Governance Affect Firm Value.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This thesis provides evidence that companies showing stronger corporate governance performance are on average also valued higher in terms of Tobin’s q. This evidence is found using a dataset of 242 of Europe’s largest corporations listed in the FTSE Eurotop 300 index. For each of these corporations, a dataset of over 300 corporate governance rating variables is analysed to establish a detailed overview of a firm’s corporate governance performance. These 300 rating variables result out of a corporate governance standard established by an independent rating agency in cooperation with the largest European institutional investors and in reference to the respective national corporate governance codes of the companies in the sample. The final regression model containing independent score components for Corporate Governance performance and financial performance proxied by ROA represents an R square adjusted of 42 per cent, thereby making the model and the inherent coefficients highly representative. The coefficient of the corporate governance score component suggests that, ceteris paribus, a one point increase in the value of the score component leads on average to a 0.3 point increase in Tobin’s q. The statistical findings are tested in depth for their practical validity in the subsequent Interview with the DWS Investment Group.

The Politics of Global Supply Chains analyses the changing politics of power and distribution within contemporary global supply chains. Drawing on over 300 interviews with farmers, workers, activists, businesses and government officials in garment and coffee sector supply chains, the book shows how the increased involvement of non-state actors in supply chain governance is re-shaping established patterns of global political power, responsibility and accountability. These emerging supply chain governance systems are shown to be multi-layered and politically contested, as transnational governance schemes interact with traditional state governance arrangements in both complementary and conflicting ways. The book’s analysis of changes to the relationship between state and non-state actors within transnational governance processes will be of particular interest to scholars and students of globalisation, global governance and regulation. The Politics of Global Supply Chains also suggests some practical ways by which the effectiveness and accountability of supply chain governance could be strengthened, which will interest both scholars and practitioners in fields of global business regulation and corporate social responsibility. Conclusions are relevant to the business and civil society actors who participate directly in non-state governance schemes, and to state regulators whose distinctive governance capacities could play a much greater role than at present in supporting transnational, non-state governance processes.

J. M. Malcolm, Jeremy Malcolm Multi-Stakeholder Governance and the Internet Governance Forum

Multi-stakeholder governance is a fresh approach to the development of public policy, bringing together governments, the private sector and civil society in partnership. The movement towards this new governance paradigm has been most marked in areas involving global networks of stakeholders, too intricate to be represented by governments alone. Nowhere is this better illustrated than on the Internet, where it is an inherent characteristic of the network that laws, and the conduct to which those laws are directed, will cross national borders.Thus momentum has developed to bring multi-stakeholder governance to the Internet, through reforms such as the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). In this groundbreaking and incisive book, Jeremy Malcolm examines the new model of multi-stakeholder governance for the Internet regime that the IGF represents. In doing so Jeremy outlines the state of the regime as it preceded the IGF's formation, and provides a faithful yet accessible account of international law, international relations, democratic theory and consensus decision-making as they bear on the topic. He then builds a compelling case for the reform of the IGF to enable it to fulfil its mandate as an institution for multi-stakeholder Internet governance.

Julia Frehse M.A versus Alliances. The Impact of Partner-specific Alliance Experience on Governance Choice

When companies decide upon a strategy to achieve and sustain growth, they can choose between different options to reach this goal. If external growth is chosen, alliances and acquisitions are typically considered alternative governance structures that involve cooperative efforts on the inter-organizational level. Despite this similarity, each of the two governance types has its own strengths and weaknesses: alliances are based on contracts and offer the firm a substantial level of flexibility while acquisitions are ownership-based and imply a higher degree of commitment but also control. In the course of the governance decision, tradeoffs have to be made between flexibility and control. The challenge managers have to decide, which of the two governance modes suits a specific situation best and will achieve superior results for the company. Prior research shows that a company's history in inter-organizational governance influences its future governance choices. Firms that have cooperated in an alliance in the past make different governance choices than firms who lack this experience. In general, companies tend to choose governance modes they are already familiar with for future transactions. In addition, whether the partner firms know each other and have worked together before also influences the choice between alliances and acquisitions. This book lays its focus on situations, where companies have allied in the past and are now deciding upon the appropriate governance for...

Barbara Sveva Magnanelli The Role of Corporate Governance in Financial Statement Frauds

The attention on corporate governance, and the role played by it within the companies, has been increasing significantly in the recent years due to the numerous financial statement frauds that occurred. Both academics and practitioners have started to question if the corporate governance has a responsibility in the fraud occurrence and which could be the most relevant factors that can induce fraudulent behaviors. This book has the aim to provide a deep analysis of the causes of the financial statement frauds, taking into account specifically the corporate governance systems in which the firms operate. Different cultural contexts, characterized by various governance models, are analyzed. An empirical analysis of the governance as a whole at first, and of the single governance mechanisms later, is conducted, providing interesting findings on the major governance lacks and failures that could lead to a financial statement fraud occurrence, or at least that could increase the likelihood of its occurrence.

Julie Salisbury Around the World in Seven Years. A Life-Changing Journey

Julie Salisbury had a spectacular epiphany in 1998 that made her walk away from her husband, her high-powered job, and her Victorian house in the UK, and exchange them for a backpack and a dream. She spent the next seven years living in South Africa, Madagascar, Tanzania, Kenya, on an Indian Ocean desert island, in Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, and Canada, learning from the world community.Julie tells the story of her seven years as a nomad of the world with humour, poignancy, and intelligence, making this dream seem attainable for any woman. She travels unconventionally and without a plan, facing up to her own fears of loneliness and vulnerability. A testament to human spirit and courage, this is a very personal account of discovering individual self.In this second edition of her book, Salisbury reflects back, seven years later, retracing her steps to understand how writing the book actually led to discovering her true purpose.
