Corporate Governance in the Aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis, Volume I: Relevance and Reforms
Corporate governance has evolved as a central issue for public companies in the aftermath of the 2007–2009 global financial crisis. Corporate governance is a process (journey) of managing corporate affairs to create shareholder value and protect inter- ests of other stakeholders. This book presents a road map for various functions and measures of corporate governance.
The participants in the corporate governance process are the board of directors, executives, stakeholders, internal and external auditors, financial analysts, legal counsel, and regulators. This book is organized into four separate volumes; each volume can be utilized separately or in an integrated form. The first volume consists of five chapters that address the relevance and importance of corporate governance as well as the framework and structure of corporate governance. The second volume consists of four chapters that present the three prevailing corporate governance functions of oversight, management, and monitoring. The third volume consists of four chapters that address corporate governance functions performed by corporate gate- keepers, including policy makers, regulators, standard-setters, internal auditors, external auditors, legal counsel, and financial advisors. The fourth volume consists of five chapters that address the emerging issues in corporate governance, including governance for private companies and nonprofit organizations and convergence in global corporate governance.
