While the GDP slowdown has been relatively recent, India has been battling with a rising inflation for the past two years, which included food inflation at between , The Rupee depreciation - to become one of the poor performing currencies in the international market. Although the Eurozone crises and U.S. economic slowdown has contributed to the slowdown, and reduced demand.
Other factors that have contributed to growth challenges:
• Sector diversification - - poor agricultural output – need more sectors other than service industry for growth advancement.
• Infrastructure deficit, Energy – underutilization and distribution system being uneven
• Education & Health - low spending
Regional Disparity – Different tax and state laws – not conducive for firms to expand /foreign companies to enter
Political instability – Governance issues - power seems to lie everywhere, but in the center
Corruption and lack of confidence among corporates

It Governance

...Information and technology (IT) governance is a subset discipline of corporate governance, focused on information and technology (IT) and its performance and risk management. The interest in IT governance is due to the on-going need within organisations to focus value creation efforts on an organisation's strategic objectives and to better manage the performance of those responsible for creating this value in the best interest of all stakeholders. It has evolved from The Principles of Scientific Management, Total Quality Management and ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems. Management concepts that date back to 1911. Historically, board-level executives deferred key IT decisions to the company's IT management and business leaders. Short-term goals of those responsible for managing IT can be in conflict with the best interests of other stakeholders unless proper oversight is established. IT governance systematically involves everyone: board members, executive management, staff, customers, communities, investors and regulators. An IT Governance framework is used to identify, establish and link the mechanisms to oversee the use of information and related technology to create value and manage the risks associated with using information and technology. Various definitions of IT governance exist. Whilst in the business world the focus has been on managing performance and creating value, in the academic world the focus has been on "specifying the decision rights and an......

It Governance

...| 2011 | | Marcela AjaziProfessor WaasMIS 51014 March 2011 | [It Governance] | | Strategy is very critical to any form of organization; IT Governance is defined as the structuring and alignment of IT strategy with business strategy. The structuring also provides successful implementation and achievement of goals as well as measuring IT performance in an organization. IT Governance is important to an organization’s life cycle, especially in this tech savvy era. I think that in order for a company to continue to flourish and expand their success over time, information technology and business strategies should be aligned together in order to stay ahead of their competitors or at least stay on the same page as their competitor’s are to assure that company’s maturity. Additionally, because IT Governance is important, it should be detail orientated towards the size and the regulation of the organization. states, “Organizations today are subject to many regulations governing data retention, confidential information, financial accountability and recovery from disasters (Schwartz, 2007).” These are the main drivers that would motivate an organization to implement IT Governance in their infrastructure. I agree with this statement because it is true in its entirety; organizations have so much information that needs to stay confidential from their competitors or to whomever it is not privy to and/or to ensure that a certain organization is within the guidelines of......

Corporate Governance

...Corporate Governance What is Corporate Governance? Corporate governance is the set of processes, customs, policies, laws, and institutions affecting the way a corporation is directed, administered or controlled. Corporate governance also includes the relationships among the many stakeholders involved and the goals for which the corporation is governed. The principal stakeholders are the shareholders, management, and the board of directors. Other stakeholders include labor(employees), customers, creditors (e.g., banks, bond holders), suppliers, regulators, and the community at large. Objectives & Principles : Corporate governance is a major concern in the Asia and Pacific region, especially in the aftermath of the 1997 Asian financial crisis. The size and frequency of recent corporate governance debacles show that poor governance is not only a formidable hurdle to surmount but is also at the forefront of economic development issues. Ten core principles have been listed by Asian Development Bank (ADB). An attempt has been made to model the principles in a manner consistent with global best practice. Principle 1: Performance Orientation The principal objective of business enterprises is to enhance economic value for all shareholders by making the most efficient use of resources. A company that meets this shareholder value creation objective will have greater internally generated resources, improving its prospects for meeting its environmental, community, and......

...Best Practices: Nonprofit Corporate Governance One of the most significant and valuable developments of the post-Sarbanes-Oxley Act environment has been the emergence of governance “Best Practices” proposals designed to enhance and improve corporate responsibility and governance. These proposals have come from a wide variety of sources, ranging from self-regulatory agencies (e.g., NYSE, NASDAQ) and business groups (e.g., The Business Roundtable, The Conference Board, National Association of Corporate Directors) to professional associations (e.g., the American Bar Association) and major corporations (e.g., General Electric, WorldCom, TIAA/CREF). While most of these Best Practices proposals have been recommended for adoption by public companies, their relevance as an aspirational goal for nonprofit corporations and non-public companies is widely recognized. From these and other resources, we have developed the following set of guidelines as “food for thought” concerning governance “Best Practices” to assist nonprofit corporations in responding to the current “corporate responsibility” environment. To set the proper perspective, a few important caveats are in order. First, these are Best Practices guidelines, and do not in most instances, reflect current legal requirements. Instead, the guidelines reflect our perspective on evolving trends in nonprofit governance and law. In many circumstances, adoption of, and adherence to, “Best Practices” may reduce a nonprofit corporation’s...

The tool for assessing ERP value was a comprehensive, multivariate and validated model adapted from the widely used Delone and McLean model of IS success. This showed that ERP investments were more effective in organizations having an IT governance domain consisting of proactive strategic guidance and participatory team building. Large enterprises, however, under-performed compared to SMEs and needed specific performance drivers, such as top management commitment to become effective. ß 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The Japanese corporate governance system differs vastly from the US system. Discuss corporate governance issues that may arise under the Japanese keiretsu system from the perspective of a) financiers b) owners c) suppliers and d) employees. A Japanese keiretsu is effectively a system of cooperation among various stakeholders. From the Japanese point of view, corporate governance includes maximization of long-term corporate value for shareholders and accountability to all the stakeholders, particularly shareholders (Corporate Governance Committee of Japan 1997). This model appears more attractive than the Anglo-Saxon corporate governance model since it takes social benefits into account. However, it must be noticed that the workability of this model relies on a flawless functioning of the market economy, which is not always the case in Japan (ibid). The later paragraphs will discuss in detail the corporate governance issues related to the Japanese keiretsu system in relation with financiers, owners, suppliers and employees. a) Financiers As shown in Exhibit 8 – Ownership Structure of Major Japanese Automotive Assemblers (1989), banks in Japan usually hold a substantial portion of equity in borrowing companies. The Japanese model is often perceived as efficient since it encourages information flow between firms and their......

...te Corporate governance statement The Board of Directors is accountable to the Shareholder for the overall performance of the Group. In doing so, it is responsible for: • • • The effective, prudent and ethical oversight of the Bank; Setting the business strategy for the Bank, following consultation with the Shareholder; and Ensuring that risk and compliance are properly managed in the Bank. Board of Directors and Membership The Board of Directors recognises its responsibility for the leadership, direction and control of the Bank and the Group and its accountability to the Shareholder for financial performance. As at 31 December 2010, the Board comprised the Chairman, four Non-executive Directors and the Group Chief Executive. The Board sees it as a priority to further enhance its existing skills and experience through the recruitment of further independent Non-executive Directors, with a process having commenced in this regard. The Non-executive Directors are independent of management, with varied backgrounds, skills and experience. There have been a total of 39 board meetings during the financial year, 10 of which were scheduled. The purpose of the 29 unscheduled meetings was to address a variety of matters, including discussions in respect of the difficult market conditions that existed during the financial period and included funding issues, capital matters, legacy related matters and the Bank's Restructuring Plan.

It Governance

...IT Governance A summary of “Ten Principles of IT Governance” (2004, Peter Weill, Jeanne W. Ross) and “IT Governance Framework” (2005, Craig Symons)  Coming up with new governance mechanisms and policies should not be reactive (patching up problems), but proactive – using the enterprise’s objectives and performance goals as a basis Mature business governance processes can be used for IT governance Governance redesigns should be undertaken only when strategy is being revised, in such cases IT governance can be used for leveraging the strategic transformation CIO’s and senior management’s involvement in IT governance is crucial for its success, because it ensures better alignment of IT with strategy The exception-handling process must be clearly defined, as short as possible and should enable and encourage organizational learning. The owner of the IT governance must be familiar with all aspects of the enterprise (not only IT) and have credibility with all business leaders. The owner of the IT governance must be made also responsible for its performance A layered structure is often necessary for IT governance (possible layers are: enterprise-wide IT governance – driven by enterprise-wide strategies and goals and IT governance at division and business unit levels) The effectiveness of IT governance is severely affected by the effectiveness of its communication and transparency Coordination in the governance of the all six assets, one of which is IT, is critical for maximizing the...
