Book Description

The field of corporate governance has seen incredible growth over the past decade as companies struggle to create effective board of director practices. A plethora of changes have been discussed, regulated and implemented. And while these changes have been driven by a co-alignment of major institutional forces, including individual country governments and capital market players, the investor-led governance reforms have instituted several unintended consequences.

The principles of Giving Voice to Values start where these approaches end by asking a deceptively simple question: 'What if you were going to act on your values—what would you say and do?'

In Values, Voice & Corporate Governance, the author, Cynthia E. Clark, provides practical strategies for board members and students of corporate governance to deal with these challenges via a series of dilemma-focused cases. These cases are designed to help users of the book implement pre-scripting and action planning. Each case will have discussion questions about the stakes, reasons and arguments, and will include stories of how governance professionals have handled various board challenges where they needed to voice their values.
