About the May 26, 2011 Event:
In recent years there has been significant news coverage of corporate fraud, accounting scandals, insider trading, excessive compensation, and other types of organizational lawsuits, resignations, and bankruptcy. Many of these reports suggest that companies’ failures are a result of a “breakdown in corporate governance.”
What is corporate governance? And how can it be used to make decisions in an organization’s best interest? Using the most current research and case studies, leading experts David Larcker and Brian Tayan answered some of these questions from their new book at this event on 5/26/11 at Stanford Law School. They discussed some of the critical aspects needed to implement and sustain superior corporate governance—including compensation, CEO labor markets, board structure, succession, risk, international governance, reporting, audit, institutional and activist investors, and governance ratings.
