The article addresses performance-related pay (PRP) for executives. The distrust of executive PRP has not been helped by million-pound rewards for executives who are perceived to have failed in their tasks. At a London Business School (LBS)/SBC Systems debate Andrew Likierman, professor of management practice in accounting at LBS, pointed out that there is little statistical evidence for the impact of an executive's performance. Perhaps the time is not long off when some employers will seek a return to base pay.
