The aim of this international study is to explore what makes for an effective non-executive director (NED) in the post-Higgs era; to find out how much the role is changing and how NEDs excercise their governance responsibilities. The study considers the perspectives of both executive and non-executive directors and, in an increasingly litigious context, whether the talent pool of NEDs is widening; who would be willing to take on such roles and the issues facing the people who do.
