The benefits of having non-executive directors on boards are many — if they are well-chosen, well used and well supported with information. Sadly, in a very high proportion of companies, these criteria are not fulfilled. Some companies, particularly small and medium sized, don't have non-executive directors. This practical, down-to-earth guide aims to help top management make the most of a valuable but under-used resource. It also provides advice for those people who would have much to offer as an NXD, but do not know how to secure their place on someone else's board.
