Jean-Daniel-Brisson, Lead Senior Director at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, recently contributed to an article on the role of the Board of Directors in strategic planning. The article was published in the electronic newsletter BI Boardroom Insider. This American publication offers monthly advice on corporate governance.
“Boards are increasingly involved in drafting strategic plans”, explains Jean-Daniel Brisson, who is delighted that they no longer limit themselves to an approver role. The expert makes several recommendations, including increasing the time devoted to drafting and follow-up of the strategic plan. “We draft a strategic plan and we discuss it once a year… but what is happening on a quarterly basis?” he asks.
To find the other tips offered by Jean-Daniel Brisson, see the article on The Board and Strategic Planning in the July 2015 edition of the electronic newsletter BI Boardroom Insider (p. 2-3).
