2:Corporate Governance Management
prepare a business style report with a ‘recommendation along with an action’ and justification based on the case study provided below.
‘As a separate legal person, a corporation has two basic objectives: To survive and to thrive. Shareholder value is not the objective of the corporation; it is an
outcome of the corporation’s activities. While shareholders entrust their stakes in a corporation to the board of directors, shareholders are just one audience among
others that the board may consider when making decisions on behalf of the corporation.
These audiences, typically called stakeholders, may also include other financial stakeholders, such as bondholders, and nonfinancial stakeholders, such as employees,
customers, suppliers, and NGOs representing various concerns of civil society. In the face of limited resources, no matter how large the corporation, directors must
make choices regarding the significance of the corporation’s many audiences.’

prepare a report to be submitted to the AICD evaluating the evidence that the responsibility of a company director is to place shareholder interests above those of
other stakeholders. Specifically, the AICD has requested that your report contain evidence, examples and recommendations for company directors that will guide them
when making board decisions so they are responsive to diverse stakeholder audiences. The AICD has advised you that they intend to make your report a public document
and it will be uploaded to the website so it can be read by both corporate governance specialists and non-specialists.
