Insightful data-led exercise from Union Square Ventures into what makes a great Board Reporting Pack for their portfolio companies. Many useful thoughts here, such as turning a Board into an Input gathering session rather than merely reporting, but the comment on Culture really caught my eye.
When I think through the different portfolio company board packs we receive, each in their own style, it did ring true that they tend to reflect the Company's own cultural identity.
So, have a fresh read through your latest Board Pack and ask yourself what does it say about your culture? Do you like the answer?
Board decks are art. And art often tells us as much about the artist as it does about itself.
