The purpose of this paper is to explore a more constructive role for corporate boards — one that would entail directors recognising the operational primacy of management and focusing their attention on the manner in which a corporation can best fulfil its long-term strategy. Paying more attention to nurturing long-term, sustainable value will help differentiate roles and will suggest the need for new metrics and a deeper appreciation by directors of corporate strategy and organisational capacity. At a time when senior management are dedicating disproportionate resources to immediate compliance issues, it is critical that boards take such a broad view.
