Stock Options and the New Rules of Corporate Accountability : Measuring, Managing, and Rewarding Executive Performance

Buy
Chairman, President, and CEO, Ceridian Corporation

Executive compensation in America is out of control. Board members of some of America's largest corporations have publicly acknowledged this problem and are actively searching for solutions. While new accounting rules requiring an expense for options are a step in the right direction, they are only the tip of the iceberg. The solutions will lie in more effective executive compensation systems, enhanced accountability, and increasingly rigorous corporate governance.

Stock Options and the New Rules of Corporate Accountability details the problems with the current system, and outlines common-sense measures that should be taken to dramatically improve the link between executive pay and performance. Drawing on his nearly 20 years of experience as a corporate compensation consultant, Donald Delves uses this noteworthy book to detail:

  • The underlying causes of the recent explosion in executive compensation, fueled by overuse of stock options and overemphasis on stock price
  • How options can act as an inefficient--and often damaging--misuse of valuable company resources
  • Tools and questions that board members should employ in addressing corporate compensation issues
  • A multifaceted strategy for both solving the problem and satisfying all constituencies, from stockholders to corporations to employees
  • Urgent matters beyond executive compensation that must also be addressed to restore public confidence in corporate America

Stock options as a component of executive compensation packages are not going away, nor should they. But when option plans provide enormous financial rewards for below-average performance, it's clear that something must change. Stock Options and the New Rules of Corporate Accountability explores the entire issue, and explains what corporate leaders, board members, and other decision makers must do to bring greater accountability and transparency to the top levels of leadership in corporate America.

The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
