A report by the WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation and the KPMG Board Leadership Center, exploring how corporate boards can guide companies into the future while governing for the present.
Drawing on many decades of diverse experiences and insights from within boardrooms, the WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation’s Thought Leadership Commission and the KPMG Board Leadership Center have produced a new report: Seeing Far and Seeing Wide: Moving Toward A Visionary Board(LINK). This paper explores what it takes to build a visionary board of directors – from bringing together the right voices to timely recognizing changes on the horizon to ensuring that management is set up for success.
When aspiring toward “visionary,” every board starts in a different place: some are already highly effective and looking to become more future-focused and expansive in their perspective, while others have significant work to do as they progress toward effectiveness.
This report is designed so that every director, no matter where his or her board is along this path, can find lessons and practical suggestions to help the board on this journey.
