    "We have waited long for a book which analyzes the roles of boards from first principles. The Policy Governance model fills that bill and thereby makes a fundamental contribution. For the first time, we are offered a fully integrated and coherent system of governance, a significant advance in management thinking, as near a universal theory of governance as we at present have." --from the Foreword by Sir Adrian Cadbury "Corporate Boards That Create Value fills a large need. This book sets forth a clear, convincing, and comprehensive framework for corporate governance. It is well written and leaves the reader with that most rewarding sensation-'I've got it, I understand it, it's right.' A must-read." --Robert A. G. Monks, founder of Institutional Investor Services and the investment fund LENS, and author of The New Global Investors "Dr. Carver's ideas-his Policy Governance model-on how boards should work makes an unparalleled contribution to this essential subject." --Judith C. Hanratty, company secretary, board of directors, BP-Amoco, London "John Carver and Caroline Oliver put forth a powerful and compelling process for board governance that indeed challenges our paradigms in today's environment . . . . The absence of a governance model as described in this book is a significant failing of the boards of directors as a body." --Earnest W. Deavenport, retired chairman and CEO, Eastman Chemical Company; past chairman, National Association of Manufacturers, American Chemical Council, and American Plastics Council "Corporate Boards That Create Value is a hugely significant and timely addition to current thinking about governance systems for corporations. Carver and Oliver effectively reposition the board in relation to corporate owners and in relation to management, and enhance our understanding of the distinction between governance and management." --Peter Dey, chairman of the Toronto Stock Exchange Committee on Corporate Governance in Canada and Partner of Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP "In this post-Enron era, directors will be forced to review their governance process and to search for alternative ways to better represent owners. Corporate Boards That Create Value is a must-read for those dedicated directors. Carver's Policy Governance model focuses our directors on developing the ends for which our organization exists, while holding the CEO accountable through written policies for their accomplishment." --T. Wayne Whipple, CFA, executive director, New York Society of Security Analysts

    All teams-including boards-must practice if they are to achieve peak performance. And because they are accountable for the organizations they govern, it is vital for board teams to practice the skills they need to lead effectively. The Board Member's Playbook-written for board members both familiar with and new to John Carver's revolutionary Policy Governance model-offers real-world scenarios that address the challenges that confront boards of all types of organizations. Step by step, the authors walk readers through a proven problem-solving sequence that allows them to find solutions consistent with the values and policies of their organizations. Designed to be flexible, the book's problem-solving methods are applicable to any challenge boards may face. By completing the rehearsal exercises, participants will sharpen their problem-solving skills and become more responsible board members. The exercises will help readers learn to better conduct regular business, make major decisions, set policy, deal with crises, and act as responsible stewards of the organizations they serve. Praise for The Board Member's Playbook "For me, the value in this book lies in its very concrete, step-by-step counsel to boards about how to capitalize on the idea of practice. The prescriptions Miriam and Bill so logically lay out are consistent with and built firmly on good theory, to be sure, and that is why the practical part is so, well-practical." -John Carver "The book is like having your own personal trainer by your side, pushing you to do your best while keeping you from hurting yourself or others. If you are serious and disciplined about moving from being an amateur to becoming professional and competent, the Playbook is indispensable." -Jim Weigel, chair, Adams County District 12 Schools, Colorado "See what happens when real life problems hit the Policy Governance board's agenda, and ponder the difference to traditional practice. I guarantee you will be amazed." -Caroline Oliver, chair, International Policy Governance Association "While few writers succeed even in demonstrating a coherent governing theory, these two writers have succeeded in giving their readers the best there is in theory and practice." -Jan Maas, Maas Governance, Harmelen, The Netherlands
