This book is for everyone who doubts the correctness of current management practices and is looking for alternatives. Here, Professor Malik develops a radical opponent view, placing the company center stage rather than the group interests. This allows a valid logic to be developed for correct and good management – an approach aimed at the survival of the company. This basis then enables questions of correct corporate governance to be answered, the function and responsibilities of the top management bodies to be defined, and the problems of social responsibility, to be solved in a new way.
Malik demonstrates what the top management and board have to achieve for leadership to be correct and effective, regardless of national regulations. He defines how to regulate the distribution of power, responsibility and behavior of the top bodies and sets the standard by which their behavior is to be measured and judged.
