Governance: The Board

Professor Daniel Hodson

By what measure should a Board judge its own performance, and what should it do if found wanting? Is there an optimum size and balance, and is there a size beyond which it is very difficult or impossible to manage? What is the responsibility of of Boards to shareholders? How should boards be conducted, particularly as between operational and strategic matters, and what sort of management information should they receive?
