Who should be a director?

Boards of directors are focused on long-term organisational success – in all dimensions. As directors, they should not run day to day operations but set strategic targets, select key management, and overview management on an ongoing basis.

This study by the International Governance and Performance (IGAP) research centre focuses on the characteristics, skills, and types of people that make successful directors.
