Summary:
¿High quality governance and management of firms is critical for survival in the modern hyper- competitive world. As Pakistani firms prosper and scale up, the need for effective governance and management would only increase. This requires young and seasoned Pakistani managers to become aware of, properly understand, and master the challenges and complexities involved in these domains. While foreign textbooks on these topics are available, most Pakistani students and managers always decry the lack of local material which they find far more insightful and relevant. Through this book, Muntazar has very ably filled this gap. The book also contains rich cases on challenges faced in developing, managing, and recovering effective MIS systems using modern tools such as ERP systems. As an academic, I welcome this book as it would add tremendously to the local knowledge base. Faculty members teaching these topics at various Pakistani universities now have an effective pedagogical vehicle in their hands. Muntazar must be congratulated for putting his vast academic and practical experience to such good use for Pakistani students.¿
