In today's risk environment, the need for effective governance has caused a dynamic shift in the role of the board of directors. Cybersecurity threats, rapid technology growth and a number of corporate scandals, all underscore the necessity of boards working constructively with management to ensure efficient oversight, rather than simply providing strategic direction. This is critical for the middle-market, where many companies often do not have the resources larger organizations have to attract board members, yet their size requires more structure and governance than smaller companies may need. Following the best practices of high-performing boards can help lead to healthy tension between management and directors for improved results and better risk management.
