The Business Perspective

In this assignment, you will compare and contrast two organizations that have management compensation plans tied to organizational performance. You will essentially compare and analyze one company that you believe has been successful using this approach and evaluate another company that you believe has failed or exhibited poor results.

These can be retrieved at any time from the SEC website: (Links to an external site.). The Annual Report will include the company’s comparative consolidated financial statements when you can use the assess trends in operational performance and financial position. The reports will also include management’s discussion and analysis (MD&A) as well as the footnotes to the financial statements. The footnotes will typically provide the details of any share-based compensation reported in the financial statements. Proxy Statements: Public companies will also file their Proxy Statements (labeled DEF 14A) with the SEC. The proxy statement will typically provide extensive details on corporate governance including director and executive compensation policies. Requirement:a.
