    1. Analysis: Swift takeover for Olympus unlikely

      The long-term approach of major Japanese investors like banks and life insurers, combined with an aversion to foreign and hostile takeovers and uncertainty over lawsuits stemming from the $1.7 billion accounting scandal, will likely make any change of ownership at Olympus a gradual process. The camera and endoscope maker is seeking a friendly capital tie-up with a rival electronics company such as Sony Corp or Fujifilm to bolster its finances after unpicking the 13-year accounting fraud to find

      Six Years Later, The Problem at HP is Still the Board

      Six years ago, I wrote a post on my blog in the wake of the departure of HP’s (HPQ) then-Chairman Pattie Dunn.  I said then that the problem then wasn’t Dunn, but HP’s board. Since this post, Mark Hurd departed under a cloud, Leo Apotheker was hired and fired in less than a year.  What’s interesting, as I re-read the post is that 3 members of the 2006 board are still there today: Larry Babbio, Sari Baldauf, and John Hammergren. They seem to have imparted the same kinds of dysfunctionality that p

    4. The women who are breaking into the boardroom

      News from the Professional Boards Forum that almost 100 women were made directors of the UK's top businesses last year suggested that a Government-commissioned report by former trade minister Lord Davies had been taken seriously by the City. In February, he told corporate Britain that 25 per cent of their directors had to be women by 2015. The hires – which included Stacey Cartwright, the finance director of Burberry who joined GlaxoSmithKline's board; Linda Gillespie Stuntz, who went to Shell,

    5. Diversity on Boards

      Having a board with diverse perspectives is critically important. Everyone brings his or her own personal and professional contacts and experiences to their service on a nonprofit board. There will always be numerous challenges facing a nonprofit, so it is extremely helpful when a nonprofit is able to build bridges to potential donors or policy makers in the community in a variety of ways and has a board that reflects the diversity of the community served. A diverse board will increase the chanc

    7. The Conference Board

      The recent news that struggling imaging company Eastman Kodak lost three outside directors in a single week prompted me to consider the extent to which non-executive directors flee their companies in times of trouble and why. Evidence that this is not an uncommon phenomenon and that many directors depart for flimsy reasons — such as an increasing board workload — suggest that measures are required to ensure these stewards remain committed to their firms in good times and bad. Fundamentally, it i

    8. So What About the Board?

      It’s now a year since Michael Porter famously threw down his gauntlet by announcing from on high that all value needed to be Shared Value. That, as I wrote last year, we are moving into the Third Age of corporate-social relations. From old-style “philanthropy” – typically disbursed after corporate titans had made their pile -- to “corporate social responsibility”; from fairtrade to subtler alignments of brand and charitable effort; to something approaching the end of CSR and its sublimation into

Corporate Governance Best Practices

      Humanist Corporate Governance: A universal model for balancing power and aligning interests Abstract This monograph attempts to add clarity to the complex subject of corporate governance by offering an alternative conceptual model for a corporate board as a parental archetype, and the firm as its android child. Costly, systemic power imbalances and conflicts of interest, inherent in the conventional model, are resolved by applying ancient Roman property law principles (usus, fructus, and abusus)
