We are at a crucial juncture in the evolution of business and the economy. We must now reshape the structures and practices of business leadership to avoid going down the same path again. To a large extent this is a question of governance and the role of corporate boards, to help us wrestle with critical issues like CEO performance and succession, compensation, and forward-looking strategy. In "The Future of Boards," governance sage Jay Lorsch has gathered thought leaders and some of the most experienced voices at Harvard Business School to describe the moment we are in, identify and analyse the salient issues, and chart a course for the future.
