    Executive Compensation Comp Targets That Work
    The troubles associated with executive performance targets are wellknown. Most often they encourage short-termism. Cutting research and development to increase quarterly profitability or earnings per share, for instance, may compromise an organization’s ability to introduce innovative products and services. Managers can also game the metrics—by, say, lowballing budgets and forecasts to set themselves easily achievable goals. And, some executives manipulate performance numbers by accelerating revenue recognition or postponing discretionary expenditures. Join Professor Milbourn for an engaging discussion of this complex topic.

    Time: 4:30 p.m. Registration | 5:00–6:00 p.m. Thought Leadership Presentation | 6:00–7:30 p.m. | Cocktail Reception and Networking
