Everyone from investors to employees to executives is asking what corporations can do to begin effectively governing themselves.

"Corporate Governance "explores how directors must deal with internal events from strategy formulation to executive compensation, and external events from hostile takeover attempts to shareholder activism.

Based on a course of the same name at the Darden School of Business, it provides a complete action plan for understanding the nuances of successful governance, and improving the performance of boards of directors.
