THE CHALLENGE Corporate boards as fiduciaries are responsible for delivering maximum value and the highest standards of care. The persistent misconception that boards should be driven primarily by shareholder value will soon be an outdated one, and boards that continue to apply narrow interpretations of value and care are unlikely to survive. THE OPPORTUNITY This book reveals a future-proofing opportunity for courageous boards to redefine value and care for employees, consumers, communities, society, the environment, and shareholders. There is no point in trying to reframe value and care for a wider range of audiences if boards don't have the right capabilities and attitudes themselves. THE SOLUTION Boards that Dare invites boards to challenge shortcomings in their own ability, understanding and courage. The book shows how boards embracing this new kind of broadened fiduciary dynamism will become future-proof and realize sustained shareholder value as an output. THE RESEARCH 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 organizations, this highly practical and cutting-edge book delivers the necessary solutions on how to future-proof today's boards.
