CPAR - 2019/September, Seg.03 - The Brilliant Jerk Conundrum: Governance and Control

Course Overview
Betting on a dominant visionary is one of the biggest business gambles an investor, employee or board member will ever make. If things go right, a visionary's wizardry changes entire industries and generates massive value for shareholders, employees and society.

Authors Marc Epstein and Rob Shelton deliver a prescription for success in dealing with dominant visionaries, which includes the board’s role in maintaining governance and control.
