The Reality for Board Candidates

The decision to advance one's career by joining a board is often easier said than done. With only 15% of private businesses using a board, and highly selective public boards with fierce competition for seats, this critical stepping stone to advancement is difficult to achieve. It's estimated that upward of 90% of board placements come from internal referrals, leading to the idea that it doesn't matter what you know, it's all about who you know.
