Reinventing Your Board
A Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Policy Governance
--Mike Whitlam, adviser, UK Office of Communications (Ofcom) and former director general, British Red Cross Society, London
"This book has been an invaluable resource for our board members as we have adopted the Policy Governance model. It is an excellent road map for the implementation of the model, answering many practical questions and providing numerous examples of applications in a variety of settings. I strongly recommend it for any board wishing to improve its effectiveness."
--Sister Patricia Lorenz, CSJ, board chair, Carondelet Heatth, Kansas City, Missouri
"This clear and chair-friendly book is the ultimate how-to manual for a board determined to ensure the future as they would envision it. No chairman should be without it."
--George Dessart, former chair, board of directors, American Cancer Society, Atlanta
"John Carver is a revolutionary of the very best kind. Carver's Policy Governance model has provided the means for trustees to live out Greenleaf's challenge to boards to act as both servant and leader."
--Larry C. Spears, CEO, The Greenleaf Center for Servant-Leadership; editor, Reflections on Leadership, Insights on Leadership, Servant Leadership, and The Power of Servant Leadership; co-editor, Practicing Servant Leadership and Focus on Leadership
"What I value about John Carver’s thinking is that it provides a logical and coherent base, a unifying theory of governance that covers both the corporate and voluntary sectors, a universal definition of the difference between governance and management rather than the more usual approach of attempting to allocate functions between them."
--Sir Adrian Cadbury, former chancellor, Aston University; former director, Bank of England; chairman, UK Committee on Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance (source of the "Cadbury Report"); recipient of the 2001 International Corporate Governance Network award; author of The Company Chairman and Corporate Governance and Chairmanship
