Abstract

These notes comprise the basis of several 'foundational' lectures for a 30-session, case-discussion course on governance and corporate control offered at the Harvard Business School. This course, like the theory-building and case-writing that preceded it, was largely created before the Enron debacle and similar stories involving the abuse of owners and investors sparked the current review of corporate governance practices. Thus, while the substantive research addressed in these notes have direct relevance to recent breakdowns in corporate governance, they represent the fruits of many years of research, observation, and active involvement in the governance and controls of major US, European, Japanese, and, more recently, Russian corporations. This lecture article/chapter has been peer reviewed by the editorial board of the Journal of Strategic Management Education (JSME).
