Microsoft trims exec compensation

With Microsoft showing its first-ever drop in annual revenue due to the bad economy, the software giant has cut the annual pay and awards to its top executives.  School of Management Professor James Post, an expert in corporate governance, says Microsoft provides an example of good compensation practices that should be minicked.

“This sends a clear message to its shareholders, employees, and observers: Pay can — and should — be correlated with performance.”
