In my previous post I laid out some dos and don’ts for board meeting attendees. In this post I’ll describe best practices that help enable the board to surface and tackle the key issues the company is facing.
Most entrepreneurs view board meetings as somewhere between a total waste of time and mildly annoying. Outside board members are often similarly frustrated that they are unable to get the information and analysis they desire from these meetings. This shouldn’t be the case. Board meetings should be valuable for both management and outside board members. How can you make that happen?
