Board of Directors play a vital role in society. They serve to motivate, inspire, mentor and overseer both not-for-profit and for-profit organizations.
Building an effective board requires careful thought and dedicated effort. Board members must be committed to ensuring they effectively support the organization with their action, advice and example. A board that is strong in its operation, relationship, and culture brings stability to the organization. A board that does not work effectively in these areas may destabilize the operations of the organization it intends to serve.
This book provides an outline that allows boards to develop. It steps the board through the three elements of Discovery, Direction and Development. Beginning with Discovery, the board learns about the different types of boards and defines the board type it wishes to emulate. During the Direction phase, the board establishes a framework that defines the parameters within which it will function. This includes defining the interface with the executive team and the responsibilities the board must assume. In Development, the board prepares a plan for continual board development as well as individual member development.
A champion board will produce positive and predictable outcomes within a framework of operations that contributes to organizational stability.
