Summary A front-row seat at a board of directors meeting While everyone acknowledges their power in deciding a company's direction and operation is beyond dispute, what corporate boards actually do, from day to day, is not well known. On the Board offers a unique perspective on how boards actually operate, while examining key issues and controversies boards generally face. Veteran CEO Bill Dimma outlines the most effective ways for a corporate board to govern. He details the nitty-gritty of: executive and director compensation; director and board evaluation; CEO succession planning; board chairman and CEO roles, separation or not; pension fund management; advisory boards; and the growing influence of institutional investors. Supported by the Institute of Corporate Directors, this invaluable guide offers both world-class advice and sharp personal wisdom on the ways and workings of corporate boards.
Subject Boards of directors.
