The results of our 2013 Board Governance Survey highlighted the startling information overload faced by board members. The average board book is now 179 pages in length according to respondents.

At the same time, board members continue to request more information on areas such as risk oversight. How do they focus on the key information they need to consider and find time to review this huge volume of board materials? Do boards have the ability to make informed decisions?

In this webinar we will provide an overview of the results of the survey, followed by a panel discussion on managing and streamlining the information flow  to the board.
