The Imperfect Board Member by Jim Brown

The Imperfect Board Member


An exciting governance fable by Jim Brown, helping readers discover the seven disciplines of governance excellence. (Hardcover)

The Imperfect Board Member is a leadership fable in the vein of Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Ken Blanchard’s The One Minute Manager—authors who have both endorsed Brown’s book. Lencioni says, “Finally! A book about boards that isn’t boring!”

Readers have been pleasantly surprised that a topic that has been discussed so dryly comes alive in this refreshing book. In it, fictional CEO David Slater learns to interact with the board of directors of his publicly-traded company “Communitrek.” At the same time he joins a non-profit board of directors. Through challenges and plenty of mistakes, he discovers how to be an effective board member with guidance from fellow director and local pastor, Trevor McAllister.

The back section of the book summarizes and provides resources regarding the board governance principles illustrated through the fable, particularly The Secret Formula for Organizational EffectivenessTM and the seven disciplines of the GEM (Governance Excellence Model).
