Challenging the Board

hwms.coverartIt’s not a typical employee relationship – CEO and Board.

Sure, there’s an employee contract but it hardly covers all the circumstances of the job.

Vinny, the CEO of SidePocket, has concluded that his board is out of step with the software market and that he needs to take firm steps to show them a good strategy.  These steps will put him in conflict with the board, but it is an uncertain conflict.  He’s not directly disobedient.  Yet, he is not following the board strategy either.

To Make A Point

hwms.coverartSometimes talk doesn’t work.

You’ve argued your case again and again. They hear your points, concede your argument but don’t accept your conclusion.

What do you do? And when do you do it?

And perhaps most importantly, what do you tell yourself about the risk involved? A key moment in the development of SidePocket.
