Business Ethics Mag-Prof Larcker provides a synthesis of book Corporate Governance Matters in Lessons for Practitioners

Our book covers a wide range of topics regarding corporate governance. These include a discussion of the environment in which the organization competes to understand how various forces influence the mechanisms it adopts to discourage self-interested behavior by management. In addition, we spend considerable time examining the board of directors, including the structure, processes, and operations of the board, along with the board’s functional responsibilities, such as oversight and risk management, succession planning, compensation, accounting and audits, and the consideration of mergers and acquisitions. We also examine the role of the institutional investor to understand how diverse shareholder groups and third-party proxy advisory firms influence governance choices. The book also includes an assessment of commercial and academic governance ratings systems.
