Editorial Reviews

Review

“For directors suffering information overload, this book will help in gaining the necessary helicopter view of the director’s role and how easily a board can be lulled into agreeing to a strategic disaster.” — Management Today magazine (Australian Institute of Management)

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very practical reading on the kind of challenges and questions every board should have. It is not a set of "best" practices and really contributtes to the global discussion on what is the role of corporate boards (listed and in non listed companies). I have recommended this book to several of my clients in Latin America.

This is required reading if you sit on a board today. I found the chapter by Krishna Palepu linking corporate strategy to board room information to be particularly pertinent.

This book is a compilation and reflects many years of experience. It did a great job of getting me to think about the bread of the job of being on a board and it gave many concrete suggestions about how things should be done.
