Product description

The Effective Board is a best practice guide for improving your personal effectiveness and that of the board on which you serve - whether it's for a FTSE company, a small business, a public sector body or a board of trustees.

Special chapters focus on the very latest areas of concern - including NHS Foundation Trusts and the challenges they present for directors; the lessons that directors can learn from the credit crunch of 2008-09; and current issues involving sustainability, risk management and the pensions crisis.With particular reference to small businesses, the Not-for-Profit sector, and ethics and values, The Effective Board will help you to review and improve your own performance, and respond to the governance challenges in your organization.
