Description:

Companies successful over the long term create and nurture an environment for success. They foster a culture, leadership process and infrastructure that enable and support effective strategy implementation driving toward achieving business objectives and related growth, profit and return goals. Underlying success is a culture founded in integrity and ethical values that influences and pervades the entirety of the organization. Leadership emanates from a well-comprised board of directors effectively carrying out its oversight responsibilities with a great working relationship with the CEO and senior management. And management has embedded within the organization highly effective risk management, control, compliance and communication processes critical to providing information where needed and making quality business judgments and decisions driving towards success. This book shows corporate leadership (including board members) how to ensure that their strategic plans incorporate the necessary processes, organization, and technology to get to the companies goals. This book examines areas such as compliance, risk management, executive compensation, succession planning, crisis planning, board composition, and shareholder communications.
