[rpd] Board Election 2017: Final Candidate Slate

I’m glad we are getting aligned here.  The issue under discussion is not about Managers or CEO’s.  It’s about Board Members.  And my reference goes back to the make up of the board of the most successful companies or organizations.   They meticulously pick competent, educated, and experienced board members to guide the CEO regardless of his educational level.  

A quick look at what other RIR’s expect as an entry to the board shows you that we need to look at this issue either in Nomcom or even at election time.  

Its all about the choices we make.

Reference has been made to CEO’s without the qualifications succeeding.  Please go back and look at the board make up of all those CEO’s organizations, and I can guarantee you they will mostly have MBA’s PHD’s etc.

correlation != causation
education is clearly very very very very important. Degree is just one way to meaure that (that lazy way actually)

I keep referring you on this subject to the well researched articles that does deep analysis 

See  -- only 26% of top 100 CEOs have an MBA

If you want more detailed review of this issue by one of world top management thinker ... get the book "Manager Not MBA"

but again, you run a business and you do know what i am talking about better even
