David Larcker, Brian Tayan con Corporate Governance Matters: A Closer Look at Organizational Choices and Their Consequences

This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference for implementing and sustaining superior corporate governance. Stanford corporate governance experts David Larcker and Bryan Tayan carefully synthesize current academic and professional research, summarizing what is known and unknown, and where the evidence remains inconclusive. Corporate Governance Matters, Second Edition reviews the field's newest research on issues including compensation, CEO labor markets, board structure, succession, risk, international governance, reporting, audit, institutional and activist investors, governance ratings, and much more. Larcker and Tayan offer models and frameworks demonstrating how the components of governance fit together, with updated examples and scenarios 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. This edition presents new or expanded coverage of key issues ranging from risk management and shareholder activism to alternative corporate governance structures. It also adds new examples, scenarios, and classroom elements, making this text even more useful in academic settings. For all directors, business leaders, public policymakers, investors, stakeholders, and MBA faculty and students concerned with effective corporate governance.

From the Back Cover
The Most Authoritative, Objective Guide to Designing Effective Corporate Governance

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

David Larcker and Brian Tayan thoroughly examine the choices now available in designing governance systems, explaining what is known about their impact on organizational performance. Avoiding ideology, Larcker and Tayan take an empirical approach that presents conclusions only where evidence supports them, and candidly identifies areas where broad conclusions cannot be drawn.

This edition adds new coverage of the governance implications of private equity, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, shareholder activists, engaged institutional investors, proxy advisory firms, new rating systems, and emerging “benefit” (“B”) corporations. Larcker and Tayan review new research on selecting board members and organizing their work, utilizing equity incentives and clawbacks, assessing CEO risk-seeking behavior, and much more. They have also added a new chapter on alternative governance structures, including family-operated and venture-backed companies.

This guide thoroughly addresses key issues ranging from strategic oversight and risk management to succession planning. Thoughtful and measured throughout, it is indispensable for every governance practitioner.
