Efficiency auditing of public enterprises: Findings and recommendations

A study by Prof. Dr. Ulf Papenfuß, member of the Scientific Advisory Board, and ECBE associate Prof. Dr. Michael Wolff

Self-evaluations of supervisory board appointments and processes as part of an efficiency review should be a standard instrument of professional board work. A study by the Universities of Göttingen and Leipzig analyses the extent to which this instrument has become widespread in public companies against the background of numerous discussions about the quality of board work and how it is currently implemented in these companies in terms of processes and content.
