Designed to build both competence and confidence, its principle-based approach allows any reader interested in governance to benefit from its solutions and tools.
Practical and comprehensive, everything you need to succeed in the boardroom can be found in this one place. There are principles, tools, and clear explanations of the board’s role for all five levels of governance: strategy, risk, policy, people, and resources.

This ultimate guide will deepen the governance understanding of even the most seasoned leader. Readers will understand the depth and breadth of how to add value and provide strategic oversight to any organization. From the role of the board in strategy and risk oversight, effective policy setting and compliance reporting, successfully navigating the board’s relationship with the CEO, succession planning, and protecting and stewarding the company’s financial and other resources, to governance systems, committee structures and meeting processes, this book has solutions designed to help you succeed and excel.
