The Director’s Manual: A Framework for Board Governance offers current and aspiring board members essential, up-to-date governance guidance that blends rigorous research-based information with the wisdom found only through practical, direct experience.

“I cannot say enough about the tremendous value Peter brought to Nucor during his 15 years as a director, including six years as Non-Executive chairman and six years as Lead Director. Peter sets the standard by which other public company directors are measured. His knowledge of corporate governance, outstanding judgment and excellent interpersonal skills are second to none.”
