I invested in SEOmoz recently and am having a great time with Rand Fishkin and the SEOmoz gang. We had our first board meeting recently and Rand started pondering what he liked and didn’t like about it.
He just wrote a post titled My Favorite Board Meetings which describes clearly what he likes to do. It’s an excellent framework and – while it’s different than my generic framework – is totally cool with me as I believe the board meeting should be at least as valuable, if not more so, for the CEO and leadership team. As a result, the CEO should drive the structure since he knows what he and his teams needs.
