Book Description :

The Non-Executive Directors Handbook offers NEDs, aspiring NEDs and their advisers an essential insight into the work of the non-executive director. It provides an accessible and practical guide to the increasingly significant role non-executives play in the independent oversight of organizations. The Handbook guides the reader through the lifecycle of the non-executive, starting pre-appointment and addressing along the way topics such as legal duties and liabilities, boardroom behaviour and dynamics and the role NEDs play on board committees. Coverage also includes chapters on monitoring risk, director development, performance evaluation and stakeholder communications. The aim is to provide a working tool for non-executives, with the commentary illustrated throughout by a range of case examples and checklists. The new edition of the Handbook has been fully updated to reflect the most recent legislation and regulation, including the UK Corporate Governance Code, the Stewardship Code and the upcoming Improving Board Effectiveness Guidance.

Book Description :

"It is now generally accepted that excellence in corporate governance depends critically on the contribution of independent or nonexecutive directors. They alone among the directors can provide an entirely non-partisan view of a company's affairs." "Independent directors play an essential role in creating corporate strategy and monitoring executive performance. Those outside the company are increasingly looking to them for improved corporate governance, particularly in the wake of major failures such as Polly Peck, BCCI and the Maxwell companies." "This book is a timely response to the increasing interest in this field. It is designed both for aspiring independent directors, and for others interested in the subject such as executive directors and chairmen who will work with the independent directors in the board room. Also useful for investors, bankers, professional advisers and journalists." "Houston and Lewis provide a general overview of the subject; practical guidance and information of direct application and use; and expert views from a wide range of leading practitioners and authorities on the nature and best use of the independent director."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
