CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

This book has been derived from materials produced over the years for courses involving post-experience master’s degree students and corporate governance practitioners (company directors, company secretaries, auditors, corporate lawyers, and so on). The sequence of the chapters – from diverse group ownership, through alternative board structures and processes, then corporate governance codes, before covering theories of corporate governance – responds to their experiences and expectations. Some teachers, particularly those working with students without a lot of experience, might prefer to build their courses from theory to practice. This is quite feasible, not least since to date the theories of corporate governance, other than a broad concept of agency, have not contributed significantly to its development. The underlying paradigms have been derived from company law and the codes of good practice have emerged as responses to corporate catastrophe and collapse.
