    1. What Strategic Advisers Can Do For You

      What Strategic Advisers Can Do For You

      Advisers have a stake in your business's success and take on the responsibility of corporate governance. When you start a business, you rarely do it alone. Even if you don't have a partner, you seek outside advice from legal, financial, and industry experts and from the people who have been in your shoes before. Some of these people, especially those who advise you early on, will end up on your ...

      Struggle In The Boardroom

      The prospect of mandatory quotas for women on European company boards seems to have receded, but European Commission Vice-President Viviane Reding’s campaign for quotas has pushed the issue of gender diversity firmly to the forefront of public debate. What happens next will depend as much on corporate leaders as on politicians. “There is indeed a glass ceiling for women in business,” says Ludo Van der Heyden, INSEAD’s Mubadala Chaired Professor in Corporate Governance and Strategy,” and the main

      Corporate Raiders Beware: A Short History of the “Poison Pill” Takeover Defense

      On Halloween, infamous corporate raider Carl Icahn showed up on Netflix’ doorstep with something designed to truly frighten those in charge of the troubled DVD-and-streaming-video giant: an announcement that he’d taken a nearly 10% share in the company, the opening move in a possible hostile takeover — or at least some sort of big shakeup — that would likely leave a lot of the current execs ...

    4. GMI Ratings Governance Issue | The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.

      The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS) announced the appointment of another independent director, Mark Edward Tucker, effective Nov. 5. But Goldman has much further to go on improving its corporate governance. Mr. Tucker isn’t the ideal candidate. As the CEO of AIA Group Ltd., the insurance company that American International Group Inc. (AIG) spun-off in Asia, he is unlikely to have sufficient time to fulfill his duties for Goldman. This makes it challenging for the bank’s supervisors to tap into hi

      Netflix: Icahn Says Poison Pill 'Poor Corporate Governance'

      comments, called-out + Comment now + Comment now And now, the rebuttal. This morning, Netflix announced that it has adopted a poison pill shareholder rights plan as a defense against unfriendly attempts to take control of the company. The plan kicks in when an unwanted suitor’s ownership position hits 10%. As it happens, investor Carl Icahn last week revealed that he has acquired just shy of 10% of the company’s shares. Here’s Icahn’

      Citigroup: A Symbol of Board Resurgence?

      At the center of the corporate wreckage of the past fifteen years — the accounting scandals, the outright fraud, the environmental disasters, the financial meltdown — sits the boards of directors. Their failure to choose the right CEO and to provide appropriate oversight on core risks and opportunities has, in my view, reflected a broad failure of the corporate governance movement and its reliance on directors to effectively to oversee the corporation and its business leaders. Yet, the recent fa

    11. After Olympus scandal, Japan Inc. wants less scrutiny

      Whistleblowers? No, thanks. Michael Woodford was sacked as president of Olympus last year after he revealed a $1.7 billion accounting coverup. The board of the Japanese cameramaker lied about the mystery for weeks. When the truth at last came out, the board kept their jobs and the whistleblowing boss lost his. Woodford called it a "black comedy." In no other developed market, he lamented, could this happen. His frustration is understandable. At one point Olympus' shares lost about 80 percent of
