Making Your Board a Strategic Asset

Last sunday’s Sunday Times advertised for a non executive directorship position at the FA. One of ┬áthe required criteria was that the candidate possessed a good knowledge of football. (Not knowing the full composition of the Board)we at BEL would advocate that best practice would be that some directors had no or little knowledge of football. This would bring a fresh perspective,a different line of enquiry,and lead to more objective debate within the organisation.
