While any CEO can build a board of directors, ensuring that a board is a high-performance team capable of providing the strategic and operational support companies need to succeed is no small feat.
It takes considerable focus to find the right types of board members, set clear expectations, demand full accountability, and even run successful board meetings.
Building a High-Impact Board of Directors: A Guide for Expansion-Stage CEOs is written for CEOs of early stage and expansion-stage, high-growth technology companies who lack significant experience creating and overseeing boards or who find their existing boards to be suboptimal or dysfunctional. It is designed to help them:
- Understand the value that an effective board of directors can provide
- Assess whether or not it is time to change your current board
- Recruit and assemble a high-performance team
- Establish a clear management rhythm to engage your board effectively
In addition to sharing our own views, we have supplemented our insights with the results of a recent OpenView survey of more than 80 board members and CEOs at companies just like yours. The results of that survey are shared throughout this eBook as well as a variety of best practices that OpenView has gathered working with more than 2o portfolio companies across the country.
