1.2 Scope
While evaluating the corporate governance performance of the company, it is useful and important to pay attention to the four core values of corporate governance, including transparency, accountability, responsibility, and fair and equitable stakeholders, as well as to consider some indicators of the company, such as its Board Structure, Compensation system, Shareholder Rights, and Audit issues.

Sharp Corporation - Critical Analysis

...Sharp Corporation Situation Analysis Introduction Over the past years, Sharp Corporation has experienced a steady decrease in corporate performance. From 2011 to 2012, Sharp Corporation experienced an 18% decline in revenue, a net loss of ¥376 billion, and a negative ¥44.5 billion cash position (Global Data 1). In addition, in 2012, Sharp reported a 75% decline in its share price. This report will consist of a situation analysis addressing Sharp Corporation’s three main performance problems: decreasing revenue, declining profits, and negative cash flow. Declining Revenues Poor Japanese Demand Decreasing domestic demand in Japan fueled Sharp’s decline in revenue during 2012. While Sharp Corporation has operations around the world, it generates a major portion of its revenue domestically. In addition, during fiscal 2012, 48.1% of total revenue came from Japanese markets (Global Data, 2012). Japanese demand for televisions, LCD screens, and solar panels, which are Sharp’s largest product lines declined following the termination of a government stimulus plan (Wakabayashi & Osawa, 2012). Poor forecasts and market analyses Sharp’s executive management implemented poor internal strategy by including dreadful forecasts and poor market analyses, which frequently contributed to Sharp’s decrease in revenue of 4% to ¥645.5 billion during the second quarter of 2012. First, Sharp misidentified LCD flat-screen televisions and solar panels, as key growth-driving businesses, and......

...Dell Computer Corporation Performance Metrics Every component of a corporate sustainability model should be associated with performance indicators such as inputs, processes, outputs, and outcomes. By determining the appropriate performance measures needed for each component of the sustainability model, companies can evaluate the performance and financial benefits of the sustainability initiatives. Dell Computer Corporation knew that balance is especially important in performance measurement and wanted to make a change to improve their reputation and also their consumer sales. The performance metrics that are most valuable to Dell from the inputs are mostly from the business context performance measures which include number and size of competition, diversity from competition, market size, and their competitive position within the industry should be the most important to them since they have so much competition in the industry (Epstein, 2008, p. 169). One way that I found through research that Dell has come up with to stay unique and making them competitive with their competition was by creating “the Dell Precision T5500 and T7500 which deliver up to 90 percent better multi-threaded digital content creation application performance versus previous generation systems” (Bolen, 2009). “The new systems are purpose-engineered for professionals in engineering, media, entertainment, biosciences, exploration, economic modeling and risk analysis” (Bolen, 2009).

...significantly increase productivity, innovation and creativity. The structural reforms will create a more conducive investment environment and increased business opportunities. The strengthening of corporate governance practices is key in attracting private sector investments. Corporate governance is also a priority in our drive to increase the competitiveness of Malaysian businesses to tap domestic and international capital. Internationally, governance practices now have a substantial influence on the investment decisions of long-term investors. As the competition for capital intensifies, it is important that Malaysia surpasses international benchmarks of good governance. Good governance is increasingly used to gauge the sustainability of performance and profitability of a business operation. Malaysian companies must therefore demonstrate track records of good governance in order to attract and retain long-term investors. For the capital market to continue to support the sustainable development of the economy, a sound and balance regulatory framework which promotes good ethical conduct is necessary. The necessary accountability and high levels of investor protection is a prerequisite. This envrionment must be accompanied by embedding practices into an organisation’s goals and business processes.
