"E = mc^2 was a powerful equation that brought order to the inter-relationship of mass and energy. It took one stroke from a genius to bring a higher-order perception of the relationship to practical terms - this after centuries of understanding the individual factors, but without a repeatable formula, or `architecture,' to bring predictability. Boards are no different. We all understand the importance in the individual factors of our Board existence... good governance oversight, challenging and endorsing strategy, CEO selection, and the like. Now, in `Across The Board,' Mark A. Pfister decodes the underlying architecture and ties the foundational elements into a futuristic equation that can be effectively applied to create, or reinvigorate, tomorrow's Boards."
