Board Leadership Succession and Board Makeup

Aug. 29, 2017

Board composition and board leadership succession is now part of the national conversation for hospital boards and indeed a strategic issue for most every board. As boards age and pressure to perform in a more disruptive environment increases, the right people at the table have never been more important. How do you profile the board you will need in the next few years? How do you move board members off the board to make way for different talent?
