How should a board of directors handle a “misbehaving” CEO? This report by David F. Larcker and Brian Tayan of Stanford University reveals mixed conclusions as to the degree CEO misconduct harms organizations and shows how boards lack consistency in their responses to misconduct. These contradictions underscore the importance of the questions the authors raise about how boards should respond and work to prevent poor behavior from leadership figures. getAbstract recommends this report to board members and those interested in corporate governance issues.
In this summary, you will learn
- What effect CEO misconduct may have upon an organization,
- How boards of directors respond to CEO misbehavior, and
- What questions about CEO ethics boards of directors should consider.
