Steven De Haes on Digital Transformation and IT Governance
Prof. Dr. Steven De Haes pleads for a halt to blind investments in IT and to start ensuring value creation from digital transformation. De Haes explains how to ensure this value creation with a simple model, showing that alignment between business & IT is key. IT must support the organization’s overall goals. To get this alignment, certain organizational structures and processes are needed to make sure decisions about information technology are in line with the overall business strategy. We call these needed structures and processes IT Governance. There is no research that shows that investing more into technology will directly create more value for the organization. Creating more alignment between business and IT however has been proven to impact the value creation positively, and the tool to do that is implementing IT Governance.

IT Governance | Grab @ Pizza
Creating Business Value through IT Developing an outside-in Customer focus Understanding how to practically apply best practice such as COBIT, BRM (Business Reslationship management) to realize a sustainable change in attitude, behavior and culture in both the business & IT Transforming ITSM and ITIL into a strategic capability Aligning IT and business decision making Improving end-to-end collaboration and communication Do you recognize this? 70% of the IT departments are unable to demonstrate value to their business. The business and IT relationship is under strain, both parties blaming the other. IT is under increasing pressure to improve. New, disruptive technologies such as Cloud and social media, are emerging rapidly and Businesses are demanding more and more IT. IT continually struggles to align with the business to ensure investments in emerging technologies deliver value, without negatively impacting existing services and capabilities? Business & IT alignment has been a top CIO concern for more than 10 years yet still we struggle. The latest Society of Information Management annual survey reveals ‘Business and IT-Alignment STILL as a number 1 issue. It has been in the top 3 issues for the last 14 years. Why is this? IT is still too internally focused and no always seen as a strategic business partner. There is still too much focus on adopting the frameworks and not focusing on realizing a sustainable change in Attitude, behavior and Culture in both Business and IT. The majority of IT organizations are still experiencing top ABC of ICT worst practices (as identified by more than 3000 IT organizations). Not understanding business impact and priority IT is too internal focused Too little Business involvement in requirements specification and testing “During [email protected] I was playing the Business Manager, I realized that I was making my decisions based on Business Value. This is something I don’t see in our organization.” About this [email protected]™ simulation Scenario [email protected] is a very successful company selling millions of Pizza’s every year. But after 6 months in the current year, the sales figures are far below expectations. The CEO urged the Business Manager to make a challenging recovery plan. This plan is based on a 6 month strategy to bring the sales and profit back on target. IT is a crucial enabler for reaching new markets, streamlining processes and reducing administrative overheads. The IT department must organize themselves to explore the business demands, translate them to IT strategy and organize IT Support, IT Operations and Change Management to ensure that the Business is successful at the end of the simulation. Objectives: This simulation can be used for many different situations. For each of the scenario’s we can offer separate reflection and discussions during the improvement cycles.

Getting Value from IT
Rob Lambert and Chris Edwards, from Cranfield School of Management's Information Systems department, have a passion for information technology that makes a difference to business. Having worked with hundreds of organisations over their careers, time and again they find a handful of core issues that can often make the difference between an impactful IT department, and one which simply handles 'the plumbing.' We've pulled together some useful resources which Chris and Rob have worked on recently to answer questions such as "How can you tell if your IT department is adding value to the business?" "How can you, as a current or prospective Chief Information Officer, frame the internal debate about the role of IT?"

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE meaning - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE definition - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Corporate governance broadly refers to the mechanisms, processes and relations by which corporations are controlled and directed. Governance structures and principles identify the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation (such as the board of directors, managers, shareholders, creditors, auditors, regulators, and other stakeholders) and includes the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. Corporate governance includes the processes through which corporations' objectives are set and pursued in the context of the social, regulatory and market environment. Governance mechanisms include monitoring the actions, policies, practices, and decisions of corporations, their agents, and affected stakeholders. Corporate governance practices are affected by attempts to align the interests of stakeholders. Interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations, particularly in relation to accountability, increased following the high-profile collapses of a number of large corporations during 2001–2002, most of which involved accounting fraud; and then again after the recent financial crisis in 2008. Corporate scandals of various forms have maintained public and political interest in the regulation of corporate governance. In the U.S., these include Enron and MCI Inc. (formerly WorldCom). Their demise led to the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, a U.S. federal law intended to restore public confidence in corporate governance. Comparable failures in Australia (HIH, One.Tel) are associated with the eventual passage of the CLERP 9 reforms. Similar corporate failures in other countries stimulated increased regulatory interest (e.g., Parmalat in Italy). In contemporary business corporations, the main external stakeholder groups are shareholders, debtholders, trade creditors and suppliers, customers, and communities affected by the corporation's activities. Internal stakeholders are the board of directors, executives, and other employees. Much of the contemporary interest in corporate governance is concerned with mitigation of the conflicts of interests between stakeholders. In large firms where there is a separation of ownership and management and no controlling shareholder, the principal–agent issue arises between upper-management (the "agent") which may have very different interests, and by definition considerably more information, than shareholders (the "principals"). The danger arises that, rather than overseeing management on behalf of shareholders, the board of directors may become insulated from shareholders and beholden to management. This aspect is particularly present in contemporary public debates and developments in regulatory policy. Ways of mitigating or preventing these conflicts of interests include the processes, customs, policies, laws, and institutions which affect the way a company is controlled. An important theme of governance is the nature and extent of corporate accountability. A related discussion at the macro level focuses on the effect of a corporate governance system on economic efficiency, with a strong emphasis on shareholders' welfare. This has resulted in a literature focussed on economic analysis. Corporate governance has also been more narrowly defined as "a system of law and sound approaches by which corporations are directed and controlled focusing on the internal and external corporate structures with the intention of monitoring the actions of management and directors and thereby, mitigating agency risks which may stem from the misdeeds of corporate officers." One source defines corporate governance as "the set of conditions that shapes the ex post bargaining over the quasi-rents generated by a firm." The firm itself is modelled as a governance structure acting through the mechanisms of contract. Here corporate governance may include its relation to corporate finance.

Corporate Governance - What do shareholders really value? (LECTURE ONLY)
Please watch: "UNSWTV: Entertaining your curiosity" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ7UO8nxiL0 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Can corporations' relentless focus on maximising shareholder wealth actually harm investors? UNSW's Centre for Law, Markets and Regulation presents Prof Lynn Stout, the Paul Hastings Distinguished Professor of Corporate and Securities Law at UCLA, in the second seminar of the series "In Who or What Do We Trust?" Lynn Stout has been described as "the closest thing to a rockstar in corporate governance". Professor Stout advocates the end of shareholder primacy where public corporations belong to their shareholders and firms exist for one purpose only - to maximise shareholder wealth. However, modern corporate practice needn't be this way. Professor Stout argues that shareholder value thinking actually harms investors, over time and as a class. The CLMR in association with Allens Arthur Robinsion and the Centre for International Finance and Regulation is delighted to welcome Professor Stout to lead the second seminar in the series 'In Who or What Do We Trust.'

What is Corporate Governance about?
You want to dive deep into the world of finance and management? Visit us: http://www.frankfurt-school.de/en/home/programmes.html?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=ACQUISITION In general, corporate governance is about problems that arise between a principal and an agent. Imagine you have just set up company and you – as a principal – have hired a CEO – as an agent – to run your business. The CEO may take actions that are beneficial for him, but not for you. The costs associated with such actions are called agency costs. For example the CEO might pay himself an excessive salary and buy an oversized company car. So how do you make sure he runs your company in your interest? One option is through monitoring which means that you actively supervise what the CEO is doing. In companies, monitoring is a prime task of the supervisory board. Another option is through incentives. Instead of paying him a flat salary, you might pay him a performance related salary or even give him a stake of your company, thereby aligning the CEO’s interest with your interest. This way the company’s value has a direct impact on the CEO. With organisational structures like those you can ensure that you get a return of the money you invested.

Creating value for governance
Paul Moxey, Head of Corporate Governance and Risk Management, ACCA Corporate governance is vital to societies that depend on business to create economic wellbeing. Achieving good corporate governance is complex: it involves economics, politics and fundamental aspects of human nature as well as business and markets. Ultimately, governance is about how to make good decisions. As providers of financial information to support better decision making, accountants play a key role in governance. This presentation was given at the 4th Brunel Accounting Symposium on 20 June 2014. It focuses on whether existing corporate governance and risk-management frameworks remain fit for purpose in light of current financial and economic conditions and our experience of how the frameworks have operated in practice over the past two decades. The presentation focuses on a current ACCA consultation paper. Please note that the sound quality is not very good due to some technical problems.

Stakeholder theory
The stakeholder theory is a theory of organizational management and business ethics that addresses morals and values in managing an organization. It was originally detailed by R. Edward Freeman in the book Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach, and identifies and models the groups which are stakeholders of a corporation, and both describes and recommends methods by which management can give due regard to the interests of those groups. In short, it attempts to address the "principle of who or what really counts". In the traditional view of a company, the shareholder view, only the owners or shareholders (= stockholders) of the company are important, and the company has a binding fiduciary duty to put their needs first, to increase value for them. Stakeholder theory instead argues that there are other parties involved, including employees, customers, suppliers, financiers, communities, governmental bodies, political groups, trade associations, and trade unions. Even competitors are sometimes counted as stakeholders - their status being derived from their capacity to affect the firm and its stakeholders. The nature of what is a stakeholder is highly contested (Miles, 2012), with hundreds of definitions existing in the academic literature (Miles, 2011). This video is targeted to blind users.

Corporate Governance and the Financial Crisis
The global financial crisis and subsequent recession that began in 2008 and worsened in 2009 has raised many questions about the effectiveness of corporate governance systems. Swedish researcher Erik Berglof has been looking into this topic, with a special emphasis on Europe. He says scholars are only beginning to unravel the role that boards of directors and other governance components played in the meltdown. He sees two trends emerging, however: national governments are exerting much more control over financial institutions and regulators are moving to establish global harmonization of capital requirements. Mr. Berglof is chief economist and special adviser to the president at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, which provides project financing for banks, industries and businesses. Mr. Berglof was a speaker at a Wharton conference on "Corporate Governance and the Global Financial Crisis" in late September. After making his presentation he visited the studios of [email protected] for an interview.

MBA Tuesday Club: Professor Barbara Allan- The Value of Diverse Boards
Since the financial crisis in 2007, there has been increased interest in corporate governance and the effectiveness of boards. This has resulted in extensive research on the theme of diversity and inclusion in boards. There are a number of questions commonly asked as part of this discussion: Do diverse boards help improve the performance of boards? Is there a business case for diverse boards? How do you break away from traditional board membership? Do interventions such as quotas or targets help improve the diversity of boards? Or, do they have a detrimental effect? Do business schools have a role in helping to promote diverse boards? This talk will outline the current situation and research on the value of diverse boards. It will give you an opportunity to consider whether or not you aspire to become a board member. Finally, if you are interested then what are the routes to board membership. About Barbara Allan I am Pro-Vice Chancellor and Dean of Westminster Business School which is a research-engaged and professionally focused business school.
