With its vivid stories and conversational tone, Boards That Excel is like sitting down with an astute and experienced friend -- one who's passionate about what corporate and nonprofit boards can do when they set high aspirations, are clear on purpose, and do the right things in the right way. Author B. Joseph White offers a road-map for governance success based on his experience as a director of one of America's largest private companies and chair of the governance committee of a high-performing S&P 500 company. White also distills the vast body of governance research into the handful of insights directors really need to know, and he brings readers candid interviews with exceptional board chairs, CEOs and directors who spell out what it takes for boards and directors to excel.
