      Board Evaluation: From Bogus to Brilliant

      The obligation of boards to evaluate performance

      A rush of corporate scandals, corruption and shocking transgressions has resulted in a new business atmosphere – investors, shareholders and creditors have finally had enough. Across the globe, they have banded together in special interest groups and are now insisting on legal regulations and reforms to protect their rights and interests.

      Shareholder activism has created more reforms in the last two years than in the last two decades. Investor group influence now shapes the way boards set policies in such far-reaching topics as diversity, compensation, terms of director service, and director eligibility.

      Groupon, Down 40% In 2014, Finally Does Something For Shareholders

      Today trading below $7, Groupon

      is down about 40% so far year to date.  Management is  still groping for a way to reinvent itself when, as predicted, the daily deal business turned out to not be a viable long term strategy. It was too easily copied by everybody from the local newspaper and TV station to Amazon, everyone’s most formidable competitor.
