Written by noted consultants and researchers Richard P. Chait, William P. Ryan, and Barbara E. Taylor, who are attuned to the needs of practitioners, Governance as Leadership: Reframing the Work of Nonprofit Boards redefines nonprofit governance. It provides a powerful framework for a new covenant between board members and executives: more macrogovernance in exchange for less micromanagement.
Informed by theories that have transformed the practice of organizational leadership, this book sheds new light on the traditional fiduciary and strategic work of the board and introduces a critical third dimension of effective trusteeship: generative governance. It serves boards as both a resource of fresh approaches to familiar territory and a lucid guide to important new territory, and provides a road map that leads nonprofit trustees and executives to governance as leadership.
