Many boards of directors are reticent about breaking with past practices. While some directors may be reluctant to embrace the types of changes required to transition to the Complementary Model of Board Governance, the benefits of making the change are immediate and significant.
Directors will find new clarity in their new roles. Board meetings will become shorter, more focused, and more productive. The board’s effectiveness will skyrocket as directors pull back from implementation issues and focus on the broader picture of planning where their organization should be going and what their organization is accomplishing.
