The challenges facing executive boards in business, the NHS, Universities, Charities and our Sporting bodies have never been greater - especially since Covid 19. There is, however, a real crisis in the governance of these boards. The consequences of which are potentially dreadful for these sectors and society generally as is evidenced by the ground-breaking original research by Henley Business School for The Independent Director in Society. Published here for the first time, the research for this book includes in-depth qualitative interviews with nearly 50 key opinion leaders plus a total of 623 confidential surveys of executive directors across the NHS, University, Sports and Charity sectors.
Amongst many other things, this timely book analyses and summarises the research results and statistics as well as makes recommendations to really improve board effectiveness and governance. These are sensible evidence-based recommendations from which we can all benefit.
