Based on the authors' forty years of combined experience, this eye-opening book arms boards with tools and techniques to significantly enhance their performance and contributions. Pointer and Orlikoff forward concrete recommendations for implementing benchmark governance systems and practices, creating the essential guide for those who want to make a real difference on behalf of communities they serve.
