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, an essential book that clarifies the tasks and liabilities of the board and provides a programme of learning. * An organisation's success or failure depends on the performance of its board. Yet the majority of directors around the world (92 percent in Britain) admit that they have had no training and are not sure what it entails. * Bob Garratt, highly respected international management consultant, 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. * Since directors are personally liable for corporate failure, none can afford to ignore this book, the first to clarify this area of strategy.
