    schema:description "This is a highly topical and timely publication. Globally, the crisis that has gripped the financial services sector following the failure of well known global banks in recent years has focused attention on corporate governance. To restore confidence in the financial services sector is a long-term goal and effective corporate governance, together with the closely associated topic of risk management, has gripped not only governments and banks, but the public too. In this book, John Zinkin clearly asserts that financial institutions need to exert their responsibilities beyond their shareholders and far more into the wider group of stakeholders, including employees and wider society. In considering issues globally, John provides a book that is not only thought-provoking but pragmatic and useful at a time when stakeholders in our banks need to see real change in transparent, practical ways from those charged with governing our banks.--Ruth Martin Managing Director The Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment."@en ;
    schema:description "John Zinkin's new book on Challenges in Implementing Corporate Governance is a welcome addition for board members and senior management on how to improve corporate governance in the post-crisis period. John correctly identifies that most boards on underperforming companies have three elements of failure: a lack of proper understanding of the business and its strategy; a total lack of appreciation of both the strategic and systemic risks created by new product markets; and a total failure by boards to ensure that the incentive structures for top management reflect long-term needs rather than short-term profits, thereby putting the company's future at risk. John has written a useful and practical handbook that is a must read for all board members on how to improve corporate governance.--Datuk Seri Panglima Andrew Sheng Chief Adviser, China Banking Regulatory Commission and the Boards of the Qatar Financial Center Regulatory Authority, Sime Darby Berhad and Khazanah Nasional."@en ;
    schema:description "The author has used extensive Asian examples and case studies, wherever possible, or else well-known western examples so that readers can make the connections easily between the examples and their personal circumstances."@en ;
    schema:description "Challenges in Implementing Corporate Governance aims to help board members of public-listed companies focus on what really matters. It is targeted primarily at independent non-executive directors in Asia-Pacific who are having difficulty translating what the codes of Corporate Governance demand of them into behavior that delivers long-term value to their stakeholders and shareholders. It also contains essential advice for senior management of multinationals who are working in Asia-Pacific."@en ;
    schema:description "This timely book will interest those wanting to improve corporate governance and risk management. It should also appeal to anyone curious about what caused banks to fail in a number of markets in recent times, and the values which led to this failure. In considering principles which are essential to good governance, ACCA recognizes that corporate governance evolves and improves over time. We accept that organizations in different sectors and across the world operate in diverse environments in terms of culture, regulation, legislation and enforcement. What is appropriate, in terms of governance, for one type of organization will not be appropriate to all organizations. John Zinkin's book seeks to address this challenge, analyzing the essential cultural and behavioral issues which sit at the heart of the challenges.--Paul Moxey Head of Risk Management and Corporate Governance Association of Chartered Certified Accountants."@en ;
    schema:description "The book consists of nine chapters which are designed to be easy to read and thought-provoking at the same time. Each chapter ends with a set of simple takeaways to remind the busy directors of their core responsibilities. --Book Jacket."@en ;
