Study Group on Corporate Boards aims to improve Corporate Governance

What if you could identify ways to improve corporate board structure and function?

Well, maybe you can.

In an effort to improve board performance and effectiveness, a panel of experts have offered a series of recommendations in critical areas of governance.

The "Bridging Boards Gaps" report calls for a renewed commitment to the purpose of corporate boards, and suggests guidelines to improve board practices and standards along seven core dimensions:

  • Purpose

  • Culture

  • Leadership

  • Information

  • Advice

  • Debate

  • Self-Renewal

  • The report also builds on past reforms and regulatory actions to focus on the gaps between governance ideals and governance realities and suggests practical, and new, solutions for boards of companies of all sizes and in all industry groups.

    You can download the entire report here:
