9780060882488: Revolt in the Boardroom: The New Rules of Power in Corporate America

The noted "Wall Street Journal" columnist uncovers the tectonic power shift in the corporate C-suite of the last five years - one that has made the life and tenure of today's CEO nasty, brutish, and short - and uncovers how the Internet and politicised shareholder groups will forever change how CEOs perform their jobs. The imperial CEO is gone. In its place is a new, and often messy, system of board rule, in which a group of people, many of whom have relatively little experience in business, are holding sway over corporate titans, and in which an array of new interest groups - shareholders, regulators, hedge funds, employees, and labor unions - are learning to successfully flex their muscle. This book would tell the tumultuous inside story of that revolution, examine what caused it, and explore what it means for the future of American business.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Throughout the 20th century, American corporations were governed by autocratic, almost unaccountable chief executives. Their word was law, and the only check on their power was a board of directors composed of their friends and allies. Then, in a stunning reversal, a momentous series of firings deposed the heads of some of the world s best-known companies. In Revolt in the Boardroom, Alan Murray examines the new world of corporate power. Using the access afforded to him by his influential Wall Street Journal column, Murray tells the story of three seminal board revolts: the now-famous Hewlett-Packard drama, the ousting of Boeing s Harry Stonecipher, and the deposing of one of the world s most autocratic executives, Hank Greenberg, from AIG.
