Corporate Governance & Ethics – general question
You should be aware of the many benefits of outstanding corporate governance including stability of equity prices, avoidance of unexpected takeover offers, and sensitivity to shareholders’ concerns regarding compensation of senior executives and the strategic direction of the firm. These attributes come about through the efforts of multiple “players” or influences regarding the manner in which the governance structure and performance are developed.
Choose 3 of the following players or “agents” that have the most influence on your assigned company and discuss how they influence the creation and maintenance of governance for the firm. Why did you select these three players and how do they exert their influence? Where do they have common and conflicting issues in their governance approach.
