Summary
Enhancing Firm Sustainability Through Governance presents a fresh perspective on corporate governance and how the relationship between governance mechanisms, processes and variables should be understood through a new unifying theory: the relational corporate governance approach. Francesco de Zwart examines significant areas of governance study and practice to illustrate how the most established governance mechanisms, processes and variables affect each other and the governance and management structures within a company. The relational corporate governance approach acts as a tool for analysing the governance health of individual companies and suggests the actions required to remedy sub-optimal governance and management arrangements. A wide selection of articles, empirical studies and literature have been translated into an original and understandable theory which complements and enhances the explanatory power of existing law and economics models of the firm. This interdisciplinary book will interest scholars and researchers in the fields of corporate law, economics, accounting, management and, more specifically, governance and regulation. Policymakers and practitioners involved in corporate governance will benefit from the discerning insight into managerial design and adoption, decision-making, monitoring and reporting structures and other processes within the corporation
