Corporate directorship continues relentlessly to increase in complexity. The ability of directors to fully engage with the board agenda and to be effective partners in management are two of the most critical corporate governance issues in the current environment. These are issues that implicate a level of commitment by directors to be informed, attentive, and up to speed on their duties and on the issues of importance to the organization that they serve. This commitment is made even more critical this year by the many turns of events that are impacting the agenda in many boardrooms.
