Board Dynamics: Building a Culture That Drives Performance

Boards need the right dynamics and culture to effectively carry out their responsibilities. At their best, boards can catch budding issues before they negatively impact the organization and can partner with management to lead through change. Given boards’ dual mandate to monitor and advise management, how can boards strike the right balance? We’ll work this case study as a group to evaluate the board dynamics and culture of three companies presented below in vignettes, and the take-away lessons from each to improve the dynamics in your own boardroom to set you up for success.
