Deconstructing Failure

‘As part of their continuing education, chairmen should arrange systematic education for the board in the behavioural and organisational weaknesses that regularly lie at the root of unexpected reputational crises and failures in apparently sound companies. Our experience is that this gives board members valuable new perspectives that can help them to avoid avoidable disasters.’

Professor Colin Coulson-Thomas
