STANDARDS FOR THE BOARD IMPROVING THE EFFECTIVENES
Provides an insight into how a board and its directors should be organized and run for optimal effectiveness. Using the standards should help to improve the overall performance of a board, its individual members and, ultimately, enhance the success of the company. The standards are for the boards of commercial UK companies, of all sizes and types, and should be relevant to every company director. Chairmen, managing directors and company secretaries should find them helpful in giving structure to their board's work. Based on a study of boardroom good practice, the text represents a collective view of company directors drawn from a wide cross-section of companies in diverse settings.
