Reinhard Mohn was born in Gütersloh, Germany, on June 29, 1921. After his release in 1946 by the Americans as a prisoner of war, he returned home to take over management of the familyowned printing and publishing house. He led the business, one of the leading international media enterprises, for over 40 years. The business structure is characterized by the principles of fairness, partnership, and justice. These are expressions of his idea of business culture.
In 1977, Reinhard Mohn founded the Bertelsmann Stiftung, which carries on the tradition of cultural, social, and socio-political involvement while ensuring the enterprise’s continuity. Reinhard Mohn transferred the majority of Bertelsmann AG’s share capital to the foundation in 1993. This act reflects his conviction that wealth and prosperity should also be coupled with a commitment to social engagement.
Reinhard Mohn died on October 3, 2009.

Ideas and proposals

Opening remarks

The Bertelsmann Stiftung’s fields of activity are set forth in its Articles of Association and, among others include “the promotion of leadership techniques, especially in the field of business and civil servitude through research, pilot programs and apprenticeship” as well as “the encouragement of the development and testing of effective contemporary business forms and structures, particularly through the support of research projects, pilot schemes, etc.” These principals are repeatedly followed and actively referred to, most recently in the treatment of the question being debated again today regarding purposeful organizational structure within top management, especially with regard to large companies.
These issues were thoroughly addressed and considered in a series of technical discussions at home and abroad as well as in one of the colloquiums organized by the Bertelsmann Stiftung. Reinhard Mohn, Executive board member of the Bertelsmann Stiftung and Chairman of the Bertelsmann AG supervisory board, and Dr. Herbert Henzler, Director of McKinsey & Company, Inc., both give their thoughts and suggestions in this booklet. Dr. Knut Bleicher, Professor of Business Administration Studies at the Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany, introduces the subject and characterizes it for us.
Corporate governance at a crossroads
Professor Dr. Knut Bleicher

Top management organization viewed critically

In the last decade, the organization of stock corporation top management has increasingly moved into the spotlight of both a more broadly interested public and the discussion among professionals regarding business management and the legal aspects thereof. There are numerous and diverse reasons for this. The lack of consideration for legitimate public interest when company policy decisions are made is part of this, as we see spectacular corporate collapses raising questions regarding their timely recognition by business leadership and supervision bodies, as well as about crisis prevention by management. Reckless-and too often absurd-corporate takeovers resulting from the omnipotence and bravado of a particular kind of business personality, inept efforts to sufficiently discourage this type of behavior on executive and supervisory boards, and spectacular cases of failure to ensure continuity when filling company top management positions are further exemplary reasons for the current discussion questioning our top management’s ability to function.
