A company offer a competitive compensation arrangement in order to attract, retain, and motivate a qualified CEO to manage the organization.

It examines the questions:
• What is the purpose of a compensation program?
• How do boards structure pay?
• What is the difference between expected, earned, and realized pay?
• How much do CEOs make?
• Are CEOs paid the “right” amount?
