Directors’ dilemma: the power of the board to control board process
In this case study, you are a non-executive director in a listed company. You have been supplied with a tablet by the executives to facilitate easy distribution of board papers electronically to fully brief board members in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The executives are highly conscientious, making considerable efforts to ensure the board is properly briefed on all issues relating to the company’s activities. You notice since this initiative was introduced that board papers have been getting increasingly longer, with the last board pack delivered electronically running to over 1,000 pages of material.
Are there any issues in receiving board papers electronically via tablet?
