To say that boards and directors operate in a challenging environment understates the complexity and pressures of board service. As directors continue to grapple with ever expanding agendas and complex issues in the boardroom, the Director’s Handbook provides a valuable practical resource that identifies 101 topics commonly encountered by public company directors. The first portion of each chapter sets forth a general discussion intended to provide basic context. The second section of each chapter suggests a list of questions or issues that a director might consider in connection with the topic at hand, including information to be sought from the company’s management or advisors to inform the board’s deliberations. The final portion of each chapter identifies additional resources to which the director might turn for a more in-depth analysis of the particular topic.
