Your board meetings are long and boring.


  • Invite to your board meetings nerds and non-conformists, the likes of 20-year old Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, who can tell in the face of your coat-and-tie directors that your successful business has no place to go but down.
  • Once a year, invite the labor union leader to the board meeting, preferably before CBA negotiations.
  • Once in a while, ask your middle managers to write the agenda for the board meeting.
  • If you are a manufacturing firm, conduct the board meeting once in the factory, like in the plant manager's room, after all directors have toured the plant.
  • Have a quality improvement team present its implemented project before the start of every board meeting.
  • Institute "bad news reporting", i.e., ask executives to present first their failures before their accomplishments.
