"Boards That Dare" offers actionable solutions to help board directors, chairs and CEOs move away from outmoded thinking and practices.
In today┤s world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (increasingly referred to as ┤VUCA┤), change is constant, meaning that cause-and-effect thinking at executive level will no longer move the needle; boards need to become more proactive and collaborative in their approach to organisational strategy.

While many boards across the globe continue to direct their companies and interpret their own strategic role based on 20th century models, Marc Stitger and Sir Cary Cooper show how these outdated methods place severe restrictions on how well a business can perform, or even survive at all, in a modern VUCA world. "Boards that Dare" explores how organisations can create boards that have the strategic capability, the desire and the sheer guts to identify and deliver successful strategic change in a fast-moving and disruptive environment:

- what the ┤ideal┤ board looks like
- how boards can engage in high-value dialogue and decision-making
- improving a board┤s cognitive understanding to unlock essential insights about their environment
- the growing need for boards to make difficult strategic decisions.

Based on the authors┤ first-hand experiences, as well as their own research and interviews with board members and chairs of international private, public and not-for-profit organisations, this highly practical and accessible book delivers the necessary answers as to how boards can and should contribute to organisational strategy.
