Shareholders, who may not be aware of these loans (which can amount to heavy obligations if the stock price stays below the awarded option price), can experience an unwelcome surprise the moment the loans become public.

Embracing these fundamentals provides a degree of comfort that even a large corporation can be governed, guided and controlled. Measurable systems can be established within which people can excel and achieve sustainable competitive advantage and proﬁtability for their organization.
