9781440842528: Board Games: Straight Talk for New Directors and Good Governance

Succeeding in today's corporate and not-for-profit boardrooms is tougher than ever before, with new and established board directors facing myriad new and rapidly globalizing governance challenges. Directors and aspiring board candidates need a survival guide to beat the odds and avoid crises―the best credentials and the best of intentions aren't enough. This book is that guide.


· Supplies frank advice and straight talk for current board directors and future directors that warn of the various kinds of troubling developments that can arise in and outside the boardroom

· Breaks down the core requirements, expectations, and commitments directors must make to protect shareholders based on the coauthors' deep and varied board and executive leadership experience

· Provides a roadmap for anyone who wants to serve on a board or advisory board―be it for a company, institution, not-for-profit, or government or community organization―or those who currently serve on boards but need guidance and advice

· Explains why most boards aren't more diverse and what today's directors can and should do to rectify this issue

About the Author:

John T. Montford is president and chief executive officer of JTM Consulting, LLC, the state and federal government relations advisory firm he founded in 2010, and chancellor emeritus of the Texas Tech University System.

Joseph Daniel McCool is principal of The McCool Group, a global advisory firm that helps companies, universities, and not-for-profit organizations get better results from executive search, management succession, and the board nominating process.

Review:

"I enjoyed reading Board Games a great deal. It is full of very topical and detailed information for both novice and experienced board members alike, and it takes on the tough issues, like cyber security and executive compensation, in bold and straightforward ways. Montford and McCool provide some comprehensive and rigorous guidelines and tools for board performance and self-evaluation. This is a how-to book designed to support the can-do posture required of today's boards. I will keep this book in my library and refer to it often." (Thomas W. Gilligan, Tad and Dianne Taube Director, Hoover Institution, Stanford University)

"John knows where boards have been and especially how their Audit Committees manage risk. Joe knows where boards must go and he brings equal depth and insight about the board's Nominating function. Together, Montford and McCool pack a powerful statement on the independence of board directors―and how you can make a real impact on effective governance―in the pages of this book." (Roger Kenny, Managing Partner, Kenny Boardroom Consulting)

"If you want to be a better, wiser, and more independent board director, this book is your code-breaker and action plan. It's your move." (Ed Whitacre, Chairman Emeritus, AT&T Inc., and Former Chairman and CEO, General Motors Company)

"McCool and Montford have distilled years of experience with high-level boards into this book―a how-to manual of the highest order. It provides the type of information board members need to make an impact and feel confident in the process. Slip this book into your briefcase before your next board meeting!" (Marcia Ballinger, PhD, Board Chair, Capella University)
