Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

While facing various circumstances in different industries, many once-great organizations have watched their fortunes sink, while others ride the wave of economic turbulence to grow and reap the rewards of success. Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance examines this trend, with a realistic look at what separates the organizations that effectively achieve their goals—regardless of the circumstances—from the ones that wonder, "How did this happen to us?"

Renowned corporate governance and risk management expert Richard Steinberg—advisor to major multinationals' boards and CEOs and author of Corporate Governance and the Board—What Works Best, as well as principal author of COSO's internal control and ERM frameworks—helps you better understand the factors that make up the critical infrastructure that drives every organization. Here, you'll discover what must go right to prevent catastrophes and seize opportunities for continued success.

Steinberg provides authoritative insight into the essential collaboration necessary between senior managers and members of the board of directors, with timely discussion of:

  • Critical factors for making compliance, ethics, and risk management processes truly effective

  • How CEOs and senior management teams cultivate a culture and leadership process to support and drive performance

  • How boards of high-achieving companies oversee corporate strategy, risk management, CEO compensation, succession planning, crisis planning, performance measures, board composition, and shareholder communications

  • The pitfalls that managers and boards need to avoid

  • The future of corporate governance and what's needed for continued effectiveness

With clear guidance on aligning processes, organization, and technology so your company achieves its strategic goals, Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance explains how to protect your company from financial and reputational risk, litigation, and government intervention and avoid the kinds of disasters that can befall any organization.

Format: Hardcover
The elements of strong corporate governance are lucidly explained by author Rick Steinberg with the right balance between conceptual and practical. Too often books in this field are so conceptual as to be close to useless, or so academic as to bear little relation to the complexities of a fast moving real-life corporation. It also indicates an understanding of the costs and effort to get it right, the tradeoffs that must be made, and the scarcity of executive and Board time and comprehension, of complex fast-moving corporate entities. The inclusion of analysis of some of the current controverisies over Board practices--BP and HP for example--render it more alive and timely than many more stultifying entries. As a Chairman or CEO for over 25 years, I can appreciate the scope and practicality of this guide.

Rick Steinberg does a wonderful job describing the strategic underpinnings to a risk management program. Rick's vast knowledge of the subject and deep domain expertise are brought together to provide a framework for risk management to drive corporate success. He shows that risk management is much more than a 'check box' task for executives--it can be a source of tremendous shareholder value.

While it's never too late for a current CEO or board member to learn what their responsibilities are to their stockholders, I'd strongly recommend that every undergraduate and graduate business school include this book as required reading. It is written in language that everyone can understand. It includes many current examples of the right and wrong ways companies have approached this subject in a readable fashion that is not boring. Mr STEINBERG has done a masterful job making a subject that appears to most as a unnecessary evil that one has to find a way to deal with into an opportunity for success .

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Michael Garrett on August 31, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Nearly all governance, risk management and compliance materials available to executives are written either from such a lofty altitude that they convey only unhelpful generalities and no way forward, or so far down in the weeds that they generate a dizzying mass of discouraging detail. Rick Steinberg's central role in the creation of COSO and his decades of practical experience and published commentary have given him a unique appreciation of what executives really need to know to inspire and guide their organizations forward in the crucial areas of corporate process and engagement. Rick's book is a must-read for executives and their advisors so that they can face governance, risk management and compliance from a constructive intellectual and process perspective with due regard for the actual circumstances in which their predecessors, colleagues and competitors have and will no doubt again and again fall into the traps of the ill-conceived and ill-prepared.

In Governance, Risk Management and Compliance, Mr, Steinberg provides a strategic approach for executive teams and their boards in their efforts to properly manage to meet regulatory requirements while enabling management with a balanced methodology that focuses on risk management the way it should be - a thoughtful balance between value creation /growth and the management of risks to acceptable levels.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By William Cottringer. Ph.D. on January 8, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Although its intended audience is primarily senior corporate executives and board members, this book delivers on its stated purpose and jacket promotions and serves as an excellent how-to manual for any security manager.
Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance deals with the principles that result in long-term success for organizations large or small. The author presents the three top success indicators of an organization--effective organizational governance, proactive response to risk management issues, and strict adherence to compliance procedures. These define an ethical organization, and security managers need to master them.
According to the author, governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) activities are too often thought of as insignificant "plumbing" in the depths of an organization, but in reality, it is these very activities that often determine whether a company wins or loses in a marketplace. Senior management teams may be overly confident that the pitfalls and failings of peers and subordinates can't possibly happen in their companies, on their watch. However, the high-profile failings of the big oil companies, real-estate moguls, and financial institutions are vivid examples cited by the author to prove his case.
The book points out common pitfalls to bottom-line success, such as becoming intractably overcommitted to one strategy, being reluctant to acknowledge past mistakes, and creating an environment that makes it difficult to raise concerns about critical issues. With the author's clear guidance on aligning processes and technology with organizational strategy, goals, and values, the book explains how to help protect a company from financial and reputational risk, costly litigation, and government intervention.
