Product Description

Review



'The FTSE 100 Cross-Company Mentoring Programme is beginning to have an impact upon the rate of appointment of women to senior executive and non-executive roles in the UK. There is more to do, of course, but this innovative, business-to-business initiative is delivering results. This book is a fine distillation of what has been learned from the Programme.' Sir John Parker, Chairman, National Grid plc.
 
'Ignoring the benefits of having more talented women in the boardroom is bad business. Having more women means extending the portfolio of skills at the top, providing female role models for younger high potential women and guaranteeing that all levels of management are filled with the best executives, and A Woman's Place is in the Boardroom: The Roadmap has some good ideas in all these areas.' Meg Munn, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office
 
'Increasingly European countries are encouraging their businesses to have more women board members. The UK is ahead of much of Europe but still has more to do. The Cross-Company Mentoring Programme is making real progress and this book gives practical help to companies in improving this pan-European business issue.' Peter Erskine,
former Chief Executive of O2, non-executive Director of Telefónica
 
'In business management we are taught that good planning makes for good decisions and that it's the planning, not the plan, that makes the difference.  The 'Roadmap' is exactly the kind of tool women executives can use to plan well and make good decisions.' Teresa A. 'Terri' Dial, CEO of Consumer Banking, North America and Global Head of Consumer Strategy, Citigroup Inc.
 
'If you read only one book this year, make it this one. Whatever your role and gender I guarantee the ideas explored in only 120 pages of pragmatic text will bring rich rewards.' - Anna Allan, People Management
 
'Wow. This is the book I've been waiting most of my business life for. For my entire career I've had to be taught by individuals. There has been nothing to read that has understood what women feel and challenge how they deal with life at the top. A Woman's Place is in the Boardroom doesn't just pave the way to solving this, it sorts everything out for you. I really felt stirred reading it.' - Elsa Celab, Human Resources

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book because I am genuinely interested in getting my first board position and I thought it would offer practical suggestions for getting there. It does but the book is also fantastic if you suffer from insomia! I have fallen asleep a number of times reading it. The userful tips are interspersed with very large dull,dry chunks of theory, it reads like somebodies masters dissertation. There must be other more useful guides for getting that board position, even distilling the useful bits into a factsheet would be better than committing yourself to a week of reading all the bits you don't need to know.

Format: Hardcover
In their earlier book, A Woman's Place Is in the Boardroom: The Business Case, executive coach Peninah Thomson and management consultant Jacey Graham, working with Tom Lloyd, identified a universal problem in corporate boardrooms around the world: a dearth of female members. The reasons, they explained, are a shortage of qualified female candidates and a biased selection process. As a sequel to that book, The Roadmap plots a route guiding women executives to board positions. The journey includes eight main milestones they must pass on their way to landing their desired positions. The book is not without its detours, however, and some chapters meander slightly or delve into seemingly tangential topics. Some of the material is targeted only at women executives in the U.K. Still, getAbstract considers this a trip worth taking for any woman seeking a coveted board position. Businesses that want to remove the roadblocks for women board candidates will also benefit from each chapter's "Reflections for Companies."
