      Critical: 'Not Just What The Numbers Are: But Why They Are What They Are'

      "Management accounting is a critical aspect of the finance function because it informs the board, investors and management why the numbers are what they are, not just what the numbers are" says Douglas Flint, Group Chairman of HSBC Holdings. He was speaking about the launch of a comprehensive framework to bring consistency to global management accounting practices around the world.

      Women on Boards: Tokenism or Best Practice?

      If a company adds three eminently qualified women to their board, and it is characterized as a gender play or way to avoid a firestorm of criticism, is that progress?

      New Herbalife Convertible Struggling On Nasty Day: An Update

      Early today I wrote about the billion-dollar convertible bond Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) announced this morning. This bond is the latest salvo in the fight between activist investor Bill Ackman, who thinks Herbalife is a pyramid scheme and has wagered accordingly, and the company.  Herbalife is planning to use a large portion of the new bond’s proceeds to buy back its stock, trying to offset Ackman’s recent upper hand...

    4. Women on Boards: Another Year, Another Disappointment by Boris Groysberg and Deborah Be

      Women on Boards: Another Year, Another Disappointment by Boris Groysberg and Deborah Be

      “Still No Progress After Years of No Progress,” reads Catalyst’s recently released 2013 census of women directors and executive officers in the Fortune 500. Indeed, the news is not good: the percentage of women directors in the Fortune 500 at 16.9% has remained flat (it was 16.6% in 2012 and 16.1% in 2011). Why, when there’s so much conversation about the topic, are the numbers not moving?

      Kicking Bill Gates Off The Board Is The Best Thing Microsoft Can Do (MSFT)

      Microsoft is an insanely profitable company standing on the edge of disaster. It desperately needs new thinking.  With word that 22-year Microsoft veteran Satya Nadella is likely the new CEO, attention turns to the leadership of the company's board of directors. It will have two former CEOs, Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer...

      Orly Lobel: Compensation Should Be Guided by Merit

      Naturally, a hefty compensation package is helpful to draw the best talent. It’s important for firms to approach compensation with the same open non-hierarchical mind that we expect from creative leaders on all fronts. While in the past compensation was guided mostly by hierarchy and seniority, today merit is the compass. Despite the current market’s tendency to over-compensate execs and under-compensate creative and inventive employees, the talent wars have brought notable exceptions...
