They address issues ranging from board structure, processes, operations, and functional responsibilities to institutional investors, outside stakeholders, and alternative forms of governance.

New discussions of:

  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) activity and ratings
  • Stakeholder interests
  • CEO activism
  • CEO misbehavior
  • Cybersecurity risks

Extensively revised coverage of:
