I am not a fan of having numerous standing board committees for arts organizations.
Jacques Grisé, Ph.D., F.Adm.A.'s insight:

I am not a fan of having numerous standing board committees for arts organizations.  I appreciate the need for a finance committee, a separate audit committee (the same people who approve the budget at the beginning of the year should not be responsible for auditing financial performance at year end), an executive committee (that can operate when the entire board is in recess), etc.  But I prefer board members to spend time in the community, building support for the organization, rather than to sit in endless committee meetings.

But there is one committee that is crucial, and that is carelessly assembled all too often: the governance committee (sometimes called the nominating committee).

The governance committee has four central roles:

Change Management vs. Change Leadership -- What's the Difference?

Change Management vs. Change Leadership -- What's the Difference? | governance | Scoop.it

I am often asked about the difference between “change management” and “change leadership,” and whether it’s just a matter of semantics. These terms are not interchangeable. The distinction between the two is actually quite significant. Change management, which is the term most everyone uses, refers to a set of basic tools or structures intended to keep any change effort under control !

The world, as we all know, doesn’t do much change leadership, since change leadership is associated with the bigger leaps that we have to make, associated with windows of opportunity that are coming at us faster, staying open less time, bigger hazards and bullets coming at us faster, so you really have to make a larger leap at a faster speed. Change leadership is going to be the big challenge in the future, and the fact that almost nobody is very good at it is—well, it’s obviously a big deal ...

Some Thoughts for Boards of Directors in 2014 — The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation

Some Thoughts for Boards of Directors in 2014 - The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation - A law and economics blog from the Harvard Law School Program on Corporate Governance that gathers the latest news,...
Jacques Grisé, Ph.D., F.Adm.A.'s insight:

In many respects, the relentless drive to adopt corporate governance mandates seems to have reached a plateau: essentially all of the prescribed “best practices”—including say-on-pay, the dismantling of takeover defenses, majority voting in the election of directors and the declassification of board structures—have been codified in rules and regulations or voluntarily adopted by a majority of S&P 500 companies. Only 11 percent of S&P 500 companies have a classified board, 8 percent have a poison pill and 6 percent have not adopted a majority vote or plurality-vote-plus-resignation standard to elect directors. The activists’ “best practices” of yesterday have become the standard practices of today. While proxy advisors and other stakeholders in the corporate governance industry will undoubtedly continue to propose new mandates, we are currently in a period of relative stasis as compared to the sea change that began with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and unfolded over the last decade.

In other respects, however, the corporate governance landscape continues to evolve in meaningful ways. We may be entering an era of more nuanced corporate governance debates, where the focus has shifted from check-the-box policies to more complex questions such as how to strike the right balance in recruiting directors with complementary skill sets and diverse perspectives, and how to tailor the board’s role in overseeing risk management to the specific needs of the company. Shareholder engagement has been an area of particular focus, as both companies and institutional investors have sought to engage in more regular dialogue on corporate governance matters. The evolving trend here is not only the frequency and depth of engagement, but also a more fundamental re-thinking of the nature of relationships with shareholders and the role that these relationships play in facilitating long-term value creation. Importantly, this trend is about more than just expanding shareholder influence in corporate governance matters; instead, there is an emphasis on the roles and responsibilities of both companies and shareholders in facilitating thoughtful conversations instead of reflexive, off-the-shelf mandates on corporate governance issues, and cultivating long-term relationships that have the potential to curb short-termist pressures in the market.

GOUVERNANCE : Contrôler la communication

GOUVERNANCE : Contrôler la communication | governance | Scoop.it

Dans une entreprise la communication doit absolument exister, au prix d'un affichage des désaccords. Mais c'est au dirigeant de trancher, avec l'assurance d'avoir entendu tous les points de vu.

 

- Le dirigeant ne communique qu'après avoir dirigé -

 

La communication sert à donner un sens commun, ce qui éclaire et simplifie la vie de ceux qui en sont destinataires. Si les dirigeants l'utilisent pour autre chose, c'est tout simplement qu'ils sortent de leur rôle. Soit ils n'en ont pas pleinement conscience ni de l'effet qu'ils produisent sur les autres, et une explication de fond s'impose ; soit ils jouent un jeu personnel, et aucun règlement ne les en empêchera. D'ailleurs, la communication n'est qu'un appoint au rôle de dirigeant.

« Accorder bien plus de liberté aux salariés est la clef. Si l’entreprise veut de l’innovation et de l’inattendu, elle doit laisser la possibilité aux salariés de le provoquer. »

"« La plupart des managers ont le réflexe d’étouffer l’enthousiasme de leurs collaborateurs plutôt que celui d’en attiser les flammes. Pourquoi acceptons-nous que nos systèmes de management aient plus de chance de contrecarrer un exploit que de le faciliter ? »

Excellente question !

Improving Board Governance: McKinsey Global Survey results

Improving Board Governance: McKinsey Global Survey results | governance | Scoop.it

 

Board directors today are more confident in their knowledge of the companies they serve and more strategic in their approach than they were in 2011, according to the latest McKinsey global survey on governance.1 They say a greater portion of their boards’ time is now spent on strategy, while they are spending less time than before on M&A. The share of time spent on strategy is even greater at private-company boards than at public companies, which tend to spend more time on compliance.

 

While directors now report a more complete knowledge of various company issues than they did before,2 they say their boards struggle to understand and make time to manage business risks—one of several areas where directors indicate room for further improvement. Another is the clear need for directors to spend more time on their role: the total number of days per year respondents say they spend on board work has not increased much since the previous survey. At boards where directors say their decisions and activities have a very high impact on company performance, though, respondents spend much more time in their role than others do. These directors also report using some best practices (such as resource allocation) that all respondents agree would most improve board performance.
