Martin Hilb presents an innovative and integrated approach to the theory and practice of corporate governance. Central to this approach is a set of tools developed and tested by the author that can be used by boards of directors to provide effective strategic leadership and oversight to their organizations. The tools can be used in the selection, review, compensation, and development of board members, as well as in conducting board self-evaluations. This new approach to governance is based on four guiding principles: situational, strategic, integrated, and controlled. Together, these principles form the basis of an integrated approach to all major aspects of corporate governance. The main arguments in each section are supported by conceptual models, practical tools for boards, and case studies, making the book ideal for board members, senior executives, and postgraduates. This new edition has been updated throughout the book and includes a new chapter on mobile integrated board, management, and documentation information systems.
