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?

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?

Greetings all,
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
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Faycal Benhalima,
Blockchain technology, like many other Industry 4.0 technologies, can improve the issue of corporate governance in various aspects, including external financing of business entities through IPO. The only key issue is in what specific applications a specific new technology is used. If the Blockchain technology is used to improve and increase the security of electronic, including Internet data transfer, to increase the security of internal, intranet IT systems, to increase the effectiveness of integrated IT systems supporting business management, then the positive effects of this type of application will most likely appear. So, in my opinion, the improvement in the efficiency of companies, enterprises and institutions resulting from the implementation of new technologies, including Blockchain technology, depends mainly on the specific applications for which the new technology will be used.
Best wishes,
Dariusz

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.

I have been doing research on different issues in the Finance and Accounting discipline for about 5 years. It becomes difficult for me to find some topics which may lead me to do projects, a series of research articles, working papers in the next 5-10 years. There are few journals which have updated research articles in line with the current and future research demand. Therefore, I am looking for such journal(s) that can help me as a guide to design research project that can contribute in the next 5-10 years.
Relevant answer
Answer
You don't need to look for any journals.
All you need to do is narrow your search to topics listed in "special issues" and "call for papers". Top publishers e.g. elsevier, wiley, T&F, Emerald, etc., often advertise call for papers and special issues of journals. The topics in the special issue or call for paper can give you some hint on current and future research trends. I think this is the standard practice in academia.
I hope this advice helps.

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.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hot foods ordered have to travel quite some distances, and often take quite some time, especially during evenings, when there could well be huge and long traffic queues, which add delays in delivery. The foods should arrive hot enough to go from the delivery door to a plate on the table. The wrappings should take into account delayed deliveries... so what is your solution?

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?

Question

Does anyone have an idea about the above relationship, if any? I am open to all kinds of discussion and guidance.
Relevant answer
Answer
Corporate governance has become a subject of active academic and policy debate throughout the world. In the UK and US, there is much discussion of the deficiencies of the market system in delivering effective governance. In continental Europe, there is a concern that existing systems of governance are stifling innovation and growth. In Eastern Europe, privatisation has given way to questions about the way in which private enterprises should be governed. China is experimenting with forms of corporate governance which attempt to blend some of the features of market systems with state ownership of enterprises. 2. Despite the intense debate, evidence on the effects of different governance systems is still sparse. Corporate governance has become a subject on which opinion has drowned fact. The purpose of this paper is to review what is known about the influence of corporate governance on corporate performance and competitiveness. 3. Policy formulation would be most readily assisted by evidence on the direct relation between governance and competitiveness. The equivalent of a reduced form relation which identifies the effect of changing governance on performance is what is generally regarded as the bottom line of the governance debate. However, such a relation is extremely difficult to uncover. The range of factors which bear on cross-firm or cross-country variations in performance is considerable. This does not stop many from equating differences in economic performance between, for example, Germany and the UK to their different forms of corporate governance. Indeed, the origins of the long-standing debate on governance can be attributed to associations of this sort. 4. What is more productive than trying to provide a "macro" answer is to consider the way in which governance can bear on performance. There are probably five areas in which such a relation can exist - incentives, disciplining, restructuring, finance and investment, and commitment and trust. This paper will consider the evidence on the influence of corporate governance on each of these in turn. It will draw on the academic literature available on corporate governance systems in several different countries. 5. A particular focus with which this analysis is concerned is the interaction between competition, governance and performance. The interaction is important for several reasons. Firstly, the effectiveness of different types of governance systems may be influenced by the degree of product market competition. As will be discussed below, some governance systems create high degrees of concentration of ownership and control. Competition between both existing firms in the market and potential new entrants may be seriously constrained by the way in which companies are owned and controlled.

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?

Hello everyone!
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.
Relevant answer
Answer
Lk Fatima you can use a quantitative survey via questionnaire so that your research remains quantitative in nature.
Since Annual Reports in Morocco is on a voluntary basis, its best that you select your sample to be based on purposive sampling - that is top 30 companies listed on the Exchange based on market capitalisation (number of shares outstanding x market price per share)- which you may obtain from Thomson Reuters Datastream or Bloomberg, as large top companies have the resources to prepare such voluntary reports compared to the smaller ones. My suggestion is try top 30 first then you may extend to top 50 based on the objectives of your study.
If you select your sample of companies based on random sampling then your data could be distorted as the small companies might be included in your sample based on the random sampling used.
Voluntary reports are costly and not mandatory so usually large companies would want to publish more information on the annual report to increase their corporate reputation in getting more shareholders or retaining current shareholders.

CG studies have utilised disaggrefated CG variables to measure CG practices in a firm. Does using a composite CG variable make a difference? Is it worthwhile studying what individual CG aspects should be used in building the composite CG variable? Let me know your thoughts colleagues.
Relevant answer
Answer
Composite CG variables could be useful when there is a need to test two or more CG variables impact on the Dependent Variable, but most theoretical frameworks usually supports the relationship between 1 CG variable to another variable, hence an opportunity for novelty within the theoretical framework. My 2 cents. Would like to hear your further thoughts as well.

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?
Thanks.

Relevant answer
Answer
Research on corporate governance is important because it sets out the priorities according to which the procedural standards related to corporate governance operating in companies and corporations should be improved. In recent years, the issue of corporate governance has been studied in the context of the dominant processes to which enterprises are subject in a dynamic approach. A particularly interesting research approach can be implemented when the issue of corporate governance is analyzed in relation to the issue of social enterprises and in the context of implementing a sustainable development policy and the issue of shaping a good relationship between a specific company and other entities, with contractors, public institutions, etc.

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.

Seems that corporate culture must also be considered in order to answer the question. Culture can have a synergistic or countervailing effect on the effectiveness of a given style of leadership.
One way culture could have an effect is by how change or threat is perceived by the organization. Is it seen as an opportunity? Does it trigger post traumatic flashbacks of past events ? Does it open or close the organizational dialog and operations?
I suppose I've added more questions rather than answered yours. But thank you for the provocative question.

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?
