argudenDr. Argüden reveals the secrets to better governance in his new book: “Boardroom Secrets”

Palgrave Macmillan has just published “Boardroom Secrets: Corporate Governance for Quality of Life” by Dr. Argüden, Chairman of ARGE Consulting, a leading strategy boutique based in Istanbul and investment bank Rothschild in Istanbul.

The Founder of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab claims that “the global financial and economic crisis is above all a corporate governance crisis.”   According to the former Head of UNDP and the director of Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institute Kemal Derviş, if we are to “build the world economy on more solid foundations” we need to improve our governance practices.

The Boardroom Secrets addresses the behavioral aspects of good governance. Roger Barker of the Institute of Directors (London) claims that “This wise and practical book that argues that trust lies at the heart of coprorate governance will be of significant use in guiding the thinking of board members and company stakeholders alike”. The Founder of the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance, David Beatty who reviewed the book said “Shareholders, directors and top managers will welcome this wise, insightful, and practical book. I know of no better single source for getting it right in the boardroom. Read these secrets, apply them diligently, and improve your board’s performance.”

Dr. Yılmaz Argüden is a leading strategist, advisor, and board member of major public and private companies, and NGOs.  He is the Chairman of ARGE Consulting, a leading management consulting firm based in Istanbul; Chairman of Rothschild investment bank in Turkiye; an author and a colunmist, and an Adjunct Prof. of Business Strategy at the Bosphorus University and the Koç University.   He has served on more than 50 different boards in a number of different jurisdictions as chairman or member.  He is currently serving on the governance committees of Coca Cola Icecek, Inmet Mining, Vestel, and Yazıcılar Holding boards.

He was selected as a Global Leader for Tomorrow by the World Economic Forum. He is also the National Representative of the Global Compact in Turkiye and serves on the Private Sector Advisory Group of the Global Corporate Governance Forum jointly established by the World Bank and OECD and is chaired by Peter Dey, and the members are leading global figures promoting corporate governance throughout the world such as Ira M. Millstein and Mervyn King.
