All boards have some formality that specifies and supports the way the board governs and operates. Once structures and procedures are in place they often come to be taken for granted and their influence on the board goes unrecognized. The result is that they are rarely reviewed in assessments of board performance and updated. This episode explores board structures and procedures, defining what they are and the role they play in board governance. The episode also explores common challenges boards experience with structures and procedures, why they occur, and change boards have implemented in response to them.
