The Board of Directors of a Private Enterprise (2017) is considered by many to be the most authoritative perspective available on private company boards and governance issues. In addition to his book, Dennis Cagan has written dozens of articles in numerous publications. A small sample of which are noted below.
Private companies – this is such a broad category! When looking at their origin, their growth process, and their hoped-for ‘end-game’, there are actually many varieties – just like flowers. There are many different looks, different sizes, different shapes, and certainly different smells.
You would think that Dennis Cagan has a lot of board meeting stories, seeing as he has served on 65 corporate boards – and you would be right. Here is one cut from his cover-story article so he could use it in this editor’s note.
