In my recent posts, I have been emphasizing that good governance requires that the board itself must own the responsibility and make provision for high functioning. Although the president can and should prompt and support the board in taking ownership, success in elevating governance effectiveness ultimately depends on the board itself. In previous posts, I have outlined proposals addressing the questions of board culture and commitment, continuity and composition. Next we turn to the mechanism necessary to ensure that these patterns and practices are consistently and effectively implemented: appointment and empowerment of a board development committee.
