    1. The Pitfalls of Chasing the Rock Star By: Mark Rogers

      The Pitfalls of Chasing the Rock Star By: Mark Rogers

      It’s only normal for start-ups to want to beef up their board of directors or advisory board. The phrase “How do I get to (insert big name person in their industry)?” is all too common, as that person is viewed as the one who will put them “on the map.” I call it “chasing the rock star” and it is one of the most common mistakes that a start-up can make. Of course, what start-up in the technology sector wouldn’t want Eric Schmidt (former CEO and now Chair of Google) to serve on their board? The start-up immediately ...

    2. What does it take to be a high-impact board? By: Debra Beck

      What does it take to be a high-impact board? By: Debra Beck

      After more than 30 years of working on and with boards, and five years of blogging about nonprofit governance, I have developed my own sense of what it takes to truely lead in the boardroom. An effective nonprofit board can be summed up in four words: inclusive, engaging, accountable, and generative. This blog entry focuses on those four words and how they each create the high-impact, nonprofit board.

    3. Top 10 Provisions You Should Have in Your Advisory Board By: Mark Rogers

      Top 10 Provisions You Should Have in Your Advisory Board By: Mark Rogers

      There is a general aversion to legal agreements among many private company owners. The following are the top 10 provisions which should absolutely be included within your corporate advisory board agreement.  Despite the fact that I practiced law for more than 10 years, this list (and the advice in this blog post) is from my perspective as a private company business owner with an advisory board, not as a lawyer. As with any legal agreement, you should have your own attorney review the document prior to execution.

    4. The New Boardroom Professions By: Mark Rogers

      The New Boardroom Professions By: Mark Rogers

      All too often, board member recruitment proceeds like a checklist of professions. In truth, the skill sets represented by these professions are important assets to the effective functioning of a board of directors. As organizations face today’s growing economic challenges, their boards must respond similarly in regard to their perspective on boardroom recruitment.

    5. The Growing Role of Boards in Risk Management By: Mark Rogers

      The Growing Role of Boards in Risk Management By: Mark Rogers

      Traditionally, the role of risk management in a business setting is delegated to executive management.  However, as the term “risk” has broadened in scope to include not just direct financial risk, but other areas of a company’s operations where lack of oversight can impact the bottom-line, boards of directors are increasingly taking a more active role in risk management.  Although the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has spurred this effort, boards are quickly realizing that they can no longer blindly delegate the responsibility of risk management to their executive teams.

    6. WHO’S SITTING AT THAT BOARD TABLE WITH YOU? By: Ralph Ward

      WHO’S SITTING AT THAT BOARD TABLE WITH YOU? By: Ralph Ward

      You look around the table at your next board meeting, and ask yourself… how well do I really know these people?  The chief executive, the other directors, a top manager or two, maybe some investor or fund representatives.  You know their names, and a bit of background, of course. Still, much about the men and women sitting at this table with you remains a mystery.

    7. Board to Zuckerberg: Say “Mobile” By: Mark Rogers

      Board to Zuckerberg: Say “Mobile” By: Mark Rogers

      As part of BoardProspects’ official launch last week, we attended TechCrunch Disrupt 2012 in San Francisco.  The Conference brings together leaders from all over the technology industry, including Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Tim Armstrong (AOL), Marissa Mayer (Yahoo), and Jack Dorsey (Twitter).  However, the most anticipated appearance at the conference was Mark Zuckerberg’s.  It was the first appearance by Facebook’s CEO and Founder since the company’s disastrous IPO. Although he touched on a number of different issues during the interview, his primary focus was to keep saying the word “mobile” over and over again – try 17 times over ...

    8. Damage Control – Here’s hoping you’ll never need it (Part Three) By: Jim Farrell

      Damage Control – Here’s hoping you’ll never need it (Part Three) By: Jim Farrell

      In the last blog, I outlined some steps for talking with the media in the event of negative publicity. But what do you do, as a board member or business owner, if you answer all of the reporter’s questions and despite your efforts to “play ball,” something unflattering appears about you in print and on the Internet, where it is even more difficult to control. What do you do?
