A Blueprint for Corporate Governance is unique in that it addresses shareholder value from a managerial perspective. This important book covers all essential corporate governance issues from this angle, providing detailed information and insights.

Transparency has become a key objective of corporations and a pressing demand of shareholders, many of whom have seen their fortunes slip away because of financial irregularities and hyperinflated stock prices.

And the best way to ensure that shareholders have a clear, accurate picture of a corporation's financial health is to ensure the soundness of its corporate governance--the complex policies and procedures that dictate the relationships between shareholders, boards of directors, CEOs, managers and employees, customers, suppliers, creditors, and more.

Advocating a market-based corporate governance system based on maximizing shareholder wealth--but packed with safeguards to counter the effects of greed and incompetence--A Blueprint for Corporate Governance helps link each activity, whether it's pricing models, financial reporting, or dividend structure, to the crucial question: Does it increase shareholder wealth?

Packed with real-world examples, academic research, and statistical data, A Blueprint for Corporate Governance is the first complete, authoritative guide to bring together a state-of-the-art overview of governance practices with a detailed plan for helping managers, executives, and boards of directors focus their activities on building value for the shareholder.
