John Revay sent me an email suggesting I write a post on The Board Of Directors. I’ve got a better idea, a whole MBA Mondays blog series on this topic. I have come to enjoy the series format for MBA Mondays. It works well.
So I will write a a few posts on this topic:
the role and responsibilities of the Board Of Directors
how a Board Of Directors is selected, elected, and evolves
the role of the Board Chairman
Board chemistry and why it is so important
Board meetings, how to make them work well
Board committees – audit, comp, and governance
If I’m missing something important, please let me know in the comments.
Then I’ll invite several guest posts. I have a few people in mind who I’ve come across over the years who know a lot about this topic. I’ll probably end with three or four guest posts.
It should be a good series. I’m looking forward to writing it.
