Source: MIT Sloan Management Review
Publication Year: 1996

[This document has not yet been rated] 1128 views

How can a corporate executive balance social and economic pressures when social activists and corporate investors are the smae people? This is the quandary Amoco Corporation faced when investors repeatedly filed proxy resolutions requesting adoption of the Valdez Principles, ten environmental principles developed by the Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economies (CERES). The author describes the evolution of the relationship between CERES and Amoco. He shows how Amoco responded strategically to investor activism with corporate activism. He also discusses the three factors determining a company’s response to investor activism: the firm’s culture, the power and influence of the group filing the resolution, and the political climate in which the resolution is filed. Ultimately, responding to investor activism becomes an important aspect of integrating political strategy into competitive strategy.

The Shareholder Value Myth: How Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors, Corporations, and the Public

Author: Stout, Lynn A.
Product Type: Books / Book Chapters

Publication Year: 2012

[This document has not yet been rated] 991 views

Executives, investors, and the business press routinely chant the mantra that corporations are required to “maximize shareholder value.” The results have been disastrous. “Shareholder primacy” thinking causes corporate managers to focus myopically on short-term earnings reports at the expense of long-term performance; discourages investment and innovation; harms employees, customers, and communities; and causes companies to indulge in reckless, sociopathic, and socially irresponsible behaviors. It’s the kind of thinking that led directly to the recent worldwide economic collapse. Jack Welch, once a shareholder primacy true believer, has famously called it “the dumbest idea in the world.”
