Preview of Improving Board Decision Making Topic
“…intelligent, caring individuals regularly exhibit procedures of governance that are deeply flawed”
John Carver, Boards that Make a Difference
Boards think they make rational decisions but psychology tells it differently.
Improving Board Decision-Making challenges board members to question their belief in their innate ability by introducing psychological research and case studies demonstrating that human thinking and decisions can be flawed. This is new territory for boards. Specific board techniques to guard against these “flaws” are covered.
You will also get:

- a checklist so your board can see how it measures up
It’s a perfect topic for:
- induction of new board members
