I made these book recommendations to the group on Saturday:
On board governance model as presented:
The 24-page introduction to the 10 principles that I presented: CarverGuide, Basic Principles of Policy Governance (J-B Carver Board Governance Series) (Vol 1)
The larger text book on Policy Governance: Boards That Make a Difference (J-B Carver Board Governance Series)
The Q & A book with short chapters that answer a bunch of basic questions: Nonprofit Board Answer Book: Practical Guidelines for Board Members and Chief Executives
On business and organizational theory by Jim Collins:
This is a popular book that helps successful companies become more successful: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't
A short follow up, stand alone chapter where Jim Collins addresses some specific issues for social sector organizations: Good to Great and the Social Sectors: A Monograph to Accompany Good to Great
I appreciate complements whenever they come: Colleen Marks told me that our session was "dope" and "out-of-the-bun." So, there you go!
