Corporate Governance Matters, 3rd Edition gives corporate board members, officers, directors, and other stakeholders all the knowledge they need to implement and sustain superior governance in today’s challenging business environments. Authored by two leading experts, it fully addresses every component of governance, reflecting the latest trends and statistics. Updated throughout, it carefully synthesises current academic and professional research, summarising what is known, what is unknown, and where the evidence remains inconclusive.
