The senior leadership team is fundamentally responsible for running the company. They're accountable for creating the company vision and day-to-day operations. But even the most experienced leadership team needs trusted people standing with them who can help set expectations for the company.
Key Reasons why having the BoD is a value accelerator is pivotal in developing a strategic philosophy, mission, and accountability.
Successful companies identify market opportunities and apply corporate resources to these opportunities, which leads to creating products/services that clearly defined market segments want to buy.
Most founders love their product so much that they forget to think about what they are doing wrong and what they should do to make it buyable.
Having a board that you can be completely open and transparent with gives your company direction to develop mission statements that have the power to attack a specific set of product, market, financial, and organizational goals.
Moreover, having the BoD gives more accountability toward shareholders, ensuring they get all the needed information. The BoD acts as a fiduciary to the shareholders of the company.
A board serves as a protective entity for the interests of your company's shareholders, meeting regularly to discuss ways to increase returns and overall profits. They do it by creating policies for the overall company.
