Effective Boards

Monday, Jan. 9, 2012

What are the characteristics of an effective member of a corporate board?  What should be the relationship between the board and the CEO?  How can a corporate director get sufficient information to make good decisions? 

In this three-part video series, Bob Finocchio, head of the board of trustees at Santa Clara University, and Lon Allan, Chairman Emeritus, Silicon Valley NACDSV, discuss how the behavior of individual directors can promote effective governance. Both men serve or have served on multiple corporate boards. 

These videos are a joint project of the Ethics Center and the National Association of Corporate Directors, Silicon Valley.
