Description - What Is Corporate Governance? by John Colley
Corporate Governance is oft discussed in today's media, following the wake of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, Lucent - the list seems to go on and on. But while the term is widely used, it is not as well understood as it should be in a time when corporate malfeasance seems to be the order of the day. Governance expert John Colley and his team from the Darden School of Business explain the fundamentals of corporate governance in What Is Corporate Governance?. Perfect for business professionals who wish to better understand the topic, for managers who need to know how their corporate boards operate, and for anyone who may read about it in the papers and not really understand what corporate governance is all about, the book is a quick take on the subject in the format of the highly successful What Is Six Sigma?. From the role of governance in the success of a business, to the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley, to the things that can get a board in trouble, Colley and his team deftly explain exactly what it is that makes corporate governance what it is. The book will serve as the perfect primer to this timely topic.
