This book is one of few papers that highlight the importance of studying corporate governance for institutions offering Islamic financial services. The book is of value in describing governance in Islamic institutions and how there are many issues under the investigation process, especially issues related to the Shari´ah Supervisory board and its functionality. One of the objectives of this audiobook is to discuss, and create greater awareness of, some of the crucial issues related to corporate governance in Islamic financial institutions. A second, but in fact more important, objective is to provide, in the light of this discussion, certain essential guidelines to improve corporate governance in these institutions and thereby enable them to not only maintain their momentum of growth and international acceptance but also safeguard the interests of all stakeholders. This audiobook gives particular attention to the mechanisms for corporate governance, including the board of directors, senior management, shareholders, depositors, and regulatory and supervisory authorities. It also focuses on the effective management of risks and, in particular, on creating a supporting environment through moral uplift, social, legal and institutional checks, greater transparency, internal controls, and Shari´a as well as external audit. The paper also indicates briefly the shared institutions that are needed for effective corporate governance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bradley Manock.

However, the processes used to create those plans don´t always work and many companies have a tendency to benchmark practices from corporations known to be outstanding planners.

This audiobook was created based on Peter Drucker´s long business, consulting, and writing career. He focuses on what to do, what not to do, and how to keep a clear corporate identity and mission. He addresses how all organizations eventually go obsolete and their theory of their business no longer works. It addresses how GM did not move from income based to lifestyle based marketing for their cars, thus hastening their demise after seven decades of success betting on incomes only. He also points out, though, that the GM theory of the business still worked for Hughes and EDS, which GM bought. He describes how organizations must choose how to do things. This, he says, is why IBM was paralyzed by the different requirements of a PC versus Mainframe business. He states there are four specifications for a valid theory of a business: assumptions must fit reality; these assumptions about the environment, mission, and core competencies must fit together; the entire organization must know and understand the theory of the business and act accordingly; and the theory of the business must be tested constantly to be kept up to date. When testing the theory of the business, three things must be done if there is an issue: preventive care, early diagnosis before the problem becomes fatal, and applying the cure. This is a must read for all managers and entrepreneurs in all types of organizations: nonprofit, educational, governmental and companies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deaver Brown.
