A GNDI’s paper on Curbing Excessive Short-Termism


The Global Network of Directors’ Institutes (GNDI) has just issued a common position paper on Curbing Excessive Short-Termism stating that  “It is important to note that the timeframe contemplated by the decision-maker will not necessarily be indicative of the quality of the decision. Decisions made with a view to the long-term may not be “good decisions” and, similarly, short-term decisions may not be “bad decisions”. Accordingly, it is important that companies manage short, medium and long-term horizons across all their decision-making, and strike a balance between these timeframes”. http://gndi.weebly.com/papers.html
