Über diesen Titel


Taking readers behind the Boardroom door, this book demystifies the role of the CEO, debunks the three most widely-held organizational myths about the limits of openess and personal power, and details a system of metrics to measure and manage a new set of competencies for the Board, its directors, and the company as a whole.

From the Publisher:

Taking readers behind the boardroom door, Thin On Top demystifies the role of the CEO, debunks the three most widely held organizational myths about the limits of openness and personal power, and details an innovative new system of metrics for the Board, its directors, and the company as a whole. With pragmatism and passion, Bob Garratt moves the continuing international debate on corporate governance away from the headline issues of board conformance to focus on what each and every director and executive can do to break the cycle of misdeeds and improve board performance. Thin On Top takes a global view of the corporate landscape to constructively and clearly describe the Ten Directoral Duties that define effective behaviors and values among Board members, details training and appraisal processes including a critically important director induction program, and introduces the highly innovative ‘Directoral Dashboards’ to replace traditional management accounts for measuring and monitoring performance.

In this wake-up call to directors and executives, government regulators and investors, Garratt advocates a back-to-basics approach based on the centuries-old value of good governance—accountability, honesty, and transparency to owners, whether public or private—in order to break the cycle of corporate misdeeds, professionalize directing, reduce corruption, and ensure a civil society.

Long before the fall of Enron, there was Robert Maxwell and the pirating of retirement funds in the UK. Out of the chaos of that international scandal came a process for corporate governance that has won the respect of politicians and industry leaders worldwide—including ex-chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker and the CEO of PricewaterhouseCooper. Thin On Top deconstructs US and UK corporate governance practices and lays out that plan for developing universal methods of learning, measuring, and managing a new set of competencies--a proven model for corporate governance.
