Why is our board so dysfunctional?

Boards failures are shocking and often scandalous – yet, says Randall S Peterson, they aren’t inevitable. In this episode of The Why Podcast, he talks us though the six types of dysfunctional board he has identified in his new book and suggests what to look out for to preempt disaster. Randall S Peterson is Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Academic Director of the Leadership Institute at London Business School. His book Disaster in the Boardroom: Six Dysfunctions Everyone Should Understand is out now, published by Palgrave Macmillan. Kathy Brewis is Senior Managing Editor of Think at London Business School.
