I had just theoretical knowledge about the functioning of the board. This article enlightens me the challenges board face. The knowledge that I gained will surely be useful in future when given a chance to be board member.

Even as a manager its nice to know these perspective as one can relate well with the board members and its challenges.

A succinct and clear mandate that all the Board should be able to articulate and are equally committed to.  Sounds simple, but the challenge, and the benefit, is in the series of conversations and clarifications that lead to a clear mandate.

I have learned that there is an important distinction between a Board mandate and a Mission Statement. I now understand the importance of adopting a Board mandate and this is something that I will endeavour to promote within my own Board.
