Are CEOs Overhyped and Overpaid?

Harvard Business

How much do CEOs actually matter? Although such sentiments may not apply to most CEOs, even the anonymous CEO still benefits from the impulse: Most CEOs worldwide earn between 50 and 100 times more than the average worker.

How Banks Should Finance the Social Sector

Harvard Business Review

If financing is offered by a bank, the terms are often too onerous. As a result, charities and social enterprises do not have the cushion of external financing to manage their various capital requirements.

” After all, CEOs don’t actually build factories or sell products. It’s tempting, therefore, to view the CEO as primarily a thinker ; someone who mulls and shapes strategy. That is a part of the CEO’s job, of course. But the best CEOs know that strategy is just theory unless it’s actually translated into frontline routines―unless the rest of the company actually is executing the strategy. The CEO must live here.
