The elusiveness of a board's value and contribution
from By John T. Dinner
A challenge facing many boards of directors is discerning the value they bring to their organization and the contribution they make to that organization's success. The pursuit of good governance and board effectiveness has tended to focus on an ever-growing list of activities to guard against any and every risk known to mankind. Conventional thinking suggests that boardroom success is dependent on implementing this endless list of inputs. You wonder whether the board's role is to serve the organization or tame the governance giant.
