The data disaster : boards receive too little, too much (or just plain bad) information -- The boardroom leadership gap : the board oversees (at the same time it is led by) the CEO -- The boardroom amateurs syndrome : inadequate time, resources, and expertise for the job -- Financials, fraud, and fumbles : why "audit committee" is an oxymoron -- So what exactly is the board supposed to do? : competing (if not conflicting) governance agendas -- The Howard Hughes syndrome : directors are cut off from staff, shareholders, and major decisions -- "Does anyone know why we're here?" : poor board meetings and logistics -- We don't talk about that : boards do a lousy job of handling their personal issues -- The exploding job description : we have no idea how to evaluate, motivate, or pay directors -- The elephant in the boardroom : boards don't handle bad news well
