"With increasing muscle-flexing of shareholders, especially large fund managers, boards of directors are being held accountable for a higher standard of professional behaviour. (This book) focuses on the management of the governance process and outlines specific, practical, how-to steps and actions that can be implemented to make any board more effective. Making extensive use of Canadian case studies drawn from actual experiences, (the authors) illustrate many challenges facing those involved in governance and offer practical solutions. (The book) will help directors, shareholders, managers, advisers, regulators, and legislators alike to -- better understand the challenges and potential rewards of professional governance; understand and manage the six key success factors for boards; evaluate a board's strengths and weaknesses; outline a new code of conduct for directors; foster and manage a climate of constructive dissent; establish guidelines for an effective chairman; understand why boards fail and how to turn around an underperforming board." Dust jacket has minor edge and spine browning.
