This is just a first post that is meant to know who (of those looking for books within amazon) is also interested in a new approach to 'corporate governance in action (TM)', also labelled as 'board of directors in action (TM)', 'directing in action (TM)', a board of directors as organisational / organizational 'group in action (TM)'. If there is sufficient interest, then we can happily start a discussion group here at Amazon.
This approach is part of a new approach that looks more broadly at 'groups in action' from the collective group perspective and only using primary data.
The new approach has a number of unique characteristics, such as : it only uses primary data (recordings and observations) of boards of directors in action while they are doing their job as an organisational group in action ; it looks at what a board of directors does collectively from the perspective of the board members when they are doing joint activities in a given context.
The term 'directing in action' is expected to stress the differences as well as the similarities with 'management in action'. The last refers to the management of any organisational group in actionm be it top management teams in action, project groups in action, among others.
