Questions related to Corporate Governance
As I was reading a paper by Zattoni et al. (2013) on corporate governance theories*, I came across a passage that explains the new shift to alternative or complementary theories with the aim to explore real-life governance issues. I quote: "to enhance our understanding of the effectiveness of governance mechanisms, scholars should gain access to process-oriented data, go beyond the almost exclusive use of agency theory, and overcome empirical dogmatisms and narrow conceptualizations of corporate governance"
What does process-oriented data exactly mean? And how is it different from data used in previous corporate governance research?
* Zattoni, A., Douglas, T., & Judge, W. (2013). Developing Corporate Governance Theory through Qualitative Research: Guest Editorial. Corporate Governance: An International Review, 21(2), 119–122. https://doi.org/10.1111/corg.12016
This thread is concerned with change top down. I am still formulating this question, but central to it is change as growth.
This other thread is concerned with a bottom up approach to change as loss/ grief:
Size of the board matters but what matters the most is the corporate culture in corporate governance. Since Board of Directors are supposedly safeguarding the interest of stakeholders by providing policy prescription but CEOs are always under influence by the majority shareholders who elect the chairman. Hence minority stake holders' interest are always compromised. Strong culture based upon the ethics, morality, brotherhood/sisterhood and respects of rights needs to be inculcated for board members to be free from power and politics. Your comments please?
The study examines the relationship between corporate reputation and corporate governance mechanisms
The study general model as follows:
CR = B0+B1CRit-1+ B2Git +B3BAit+B4CEOit+ B5AIit+ B6ADit +e
Where: CR, corporate reputation, G gender, BA board activity, CEO duality, AI audit committee independent, AD audit committee diligence
I applied system GMM using the following command
xtabond2 CR l.CR G BA DU AI AD Banking Insurance OFS Y2020 Y2019 Y2018 Y2017 Y2016, gmm (l.CR l.CEO l.AI ) iv(G BA CEO AI AD, equation(level)) twostep robust orthogonal small
The question is: Is it possible to use the lagged variable after gmm command and the same variable in the original version after iv ?
As shown in the command above
I am a Phd student starting on my thesis journey to hopefully do good to the libraries, furthermore, lets say the main theme focus suggested by the ministy of higher education is the corporate governance and IPO instead of internal financing. and since I am highly interested in Blockchain I believe such techonology would serve corporate governance in wide range of ways, since it shares same characteristics with it (Transparency, cryptography, security etc), My question is what problem can we solve on the IPO in particular? can we assume blockchain adoption is same as corporate governance ? what variables can we use? the preferable study case (empirical ? ) I would be happy to find some insights since it is broad new topic and we need to shed lights on. thanks in advance

Risk management is the process of identifying, evaluating and prioritizing risks defined on various parameters. It also involves mitigating and monitoring the causes of risks to achieve the risk management objectives and a systematic process of pre-empting the possible risks, problems or disasters even before they occur. Furthermore, it involves taking precautionary measures to ward off the risk, or at least minimize its impact, or prepare the organization to deal with its impact and involves a realistic evaluation of the severity level of risk.

E-commerce has transformed the way we buy things and created jobs for millions of people, among other benefits. However, I have personally observed a significant amount of waste associated with online shopping in the form of unnecessary plastic packaging, a large amount of wrapping to deliver hot meals, and a variety of other things. Delivery is handled by integrated logistic companies in some countries, such as CaiNiao in China. One of the main aims of the logistics industry is to reduce logistic costs in order to keep prices competitive. In that case, how can they be persuaded to adopt sustainable (reusable) packaging and other similar solutions? Please share your ideas for resolving this issue.

I am a doctoral student in Greece in the area of corporate governance, and currently, I study private family SMEs. In particular, my research is to examine their characteristics in relation to their performance and I want to focus is in a limited geographical area in Greece. While there is not an official database of SMEs in Greece, from the literature that I read, surveys and interviews are the most frequent method for data collection. What is your opinion about the data collection process and analysis and also the relevant corporate governance theory? What should I pay attention to in general on this issue? It would be a problem to focus on a limited geographical area?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

H1d. S has significant positive relationship with F.
H1e. C has significant positive relationship with F.
H2. W has significant positive relationship with F.
H3a. W strengthen the positive relationship between I and F.
H3b. W strengthen the positive relationship between M and F.

Several studies in this research field are focused on assessing the impact of board structure (e.g. independent and non-executive board members, female directors, foreign directors, CEO-Chairman duality etc.) on corporate efficiency using various empirical methodologies from pooled-OLS to various forms of system-GMM models.
Nevertheless, research findings provide contradictory evidence, whether governance mechanisms significantly impact corporate efficiency.
Any suggestions and/or links to recent publications that seem to deviate from the norm, would be much appreciated.

An important step towards more compliance in companies was taken: Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (the so-called Whistleblower Directive) was published in the EU Official Journal of 26 November 2019. The directive now introduces an EU-wide minimum standard for the protection of whistleblowers. Under the new rules, companies with more than 50 employees will be required to set up secure channels for reporting breaches. The scope of the Directive is limited to reporting violations of EU law. Member States may, however, go beyond the minimum standard when transposing the Directive so that the national legislator has the possibility to extend the scope to breaches of national law. How do you assess the situation in your country? Will the possibility of extending it to national law be used?
I'm actually working on a paper about non financial disclosure and corporate governance mechanisms in Moroccan listed companies. So, I gathered the annual reports from 2012 to 2016 of 35 companies. My concern is that those annual reports are quite lacking some important informations. For instance, the fact whether the director is independant or not is not indicated. Also, in some companies' annual reports, the information about ownership structure are not completed.
1. Which criteria can I base myself on in order to know if the director is independant or not ?
2. Do you think it's better and more faisable for me to use a questionnaire than annual reports to gather my data?
Thank you for your insights.

I am doing an accounting (Corporate Governance) research on the need of inclusion of women on the board of directors (IV) as it may contribute to firm's performance (DV).
My supervisor asked to me to look for a theory to support the need to include women on the board of directors (IV). I informed him I read quite a lot of papers and noticed Agency Theory, Critical Mass Theory, Stakeholder Theory and etc.
Anyway, he is not satisfied with them since they are supporting the firm performance (DV) rather than the need to include women on the board of directors (IV). He suggested to look beyond Accounting & Finance papers as such theory usually won't be mentioned in such papers but higher chancel in Management / Organisation behavioural field.
Anyone can help to suggest the relevant theory / theories to include women on the board of directors so I may search the keyword and study myself?

Securities and Exchange Commission Report on Corporate Governance may be regarded as an eye opener in the field of Corporate Governance. What are the various aspects of this report.
Volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity call for different ways of perceiving the world, different approaches to sense and decision making, and different modes and combinations of leadership.
- Administrative Leadership. Administrative leadership is the managerial approach followed by individuals and groups in formal roles as they plan and coordinate activities in standardized business processes to accomplish organizationally-prescribed outcomes efficiently and effectively.
- Adaptive Leadership. Adaptive leadership is the informal process that emerges as organizations generate and advance ideas to solve problems and create opportunity; unlike administrative leadership, it is not an act of authority and takes place in informal emergent dynamic among interactive agents.
- Enabling Leadership. Enabling leadership is the sum of actions to facilitate the flow of creativity (e.g., adaptability, innovation, and learning) from adaptive structures into administrative structures; like adaptive leadership, it can take place at all levels of an organization but its nature will vary by hierarchical level and position. (Uhl-Bien, Marion, & McKelvey, 2007)
In some companies, managers increasingly take into account the expectations of employees, including the needs of employees in the development and identification of their self-realization with the company in which they work.
Such changes in personnel management are an important factor of corporate social responsibility.
On the other hand, this type of pro-social approach in personnel management usually increases its scale in the situation of low unemployment and high income of employees.
In addition, this type of pro-social approach in personnel management and good governance and good business practices should be correlated with the concept of effective development of countries operating in the model of social market economies.
In view of the above, the current question is: Does corporate social responsibility develop to a greater extent in social market economies?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
