In this episode, Matt Kelly and I take a deep dive into the corporate governance fiasco which is Uber. We consider the revelations in the failures of corporate governance, culture and internal controls at the organization. The company provides a fascinating study of what happens when a tech start up raised in the fraternity culture is successful and how changes are required for it to act like a multi-billion organization. Both Matt and I have written on Uber. Our podcast comes out the same day the Holder Report to the Uber Board was released so we weave in the recommendations from Covington & Burling as well.
