The Fish Rots from the Head: The Crisis in Our Boardrooms - Developing the Crucial Skills of the Competent Director

by Bob Garratt (Author)

Synopsis

Set against today's backdrop of boardroom scandal and incompetence, this work clarifies the tasks and liabilities of the board and provides a programme of learning. An organization's success depends on the performance of its board. Yet the majority of director's around the world (92% in Britain) admit they have had no training for their role and are not sure what it entails. This guide describes why directors need to move on from hands-on managing and develop a broader, more intellectual mindset - and explains how, in a practical way, they can achieve this.
