Boards That Work

Boards That Work, by Geoffrey Kiel and Gavin Nicholson, outlines a model for dealing with the key components of a governance system by recognising that there is no universal solution. Rather, it offers suggestions and options on topics including board roles and structure, board process, boardroom functions and ensuring the continual rejuvenation of the board. The approach uses practical solutions to help boards develop strategies tailored to their own needs. 

It is an extensive review of board operations based on the authors' extensive consulting experience and academic research.
