As more pressure is exerted upon organisations to demonstrate good governance across their entire operation, increasingly boards of directors are expected to possess far greater knowledge and understanding of the organisation’s business and its supply chain. For directors to naively believe that their collegial friendships at board level, or their business connections will “make the grade” is simply not good enough, neither acceptable.

In today’s times boards are under constant and intense scrutiny, especially since informed stakeholders and various activists have far greater access to an organisation’s information and which could be used against them. In addition, disgruntled employees are now much better equipped to pervasively communicate the organisation’s dirty secrets, and therefore directors really do need to be on “top of their game” if they intend keeping their board positions, as well as keeping themselves out of trouble.
