Why not call it the "Bernie Ebbers Memorial Group Therapy"?

Not a trace of my sarcasm can be found in Rees Morrison's professional post recommending a recent survey by PLC Law Department (hat-tipping Adam Frederickson)  on managing risk and compliance, based mostly on European companies. Apparently the survey found that:

- 82.5 percent of the respondent general counsel provide the principal advice to the board on corporate governance issues.

- 36 percent said that their board of directors did not have a good understanding of corporate governance issues.

- 31.6 percent said that getting board and senior management support for compliance programs was either extremely difficult or very difficult.

Astonishing. No one's asking, but I cannot imagine serving on a board without my own personal advocate sitting behind me, at this point. Perhaps a few PowerPoint slides featuring mug shots from across the pond would help drive the point home?
