An article describes the ideal induction and development process for directors. It is argued that the induction process should be tailored to an individual director's existing skills and intended role, but must cover the nature of the company and the legal responsibilities and liabilities of a director. The main responsibility for the ongoing development of directors lies with the company chairman, although the company secretary, investors, and senior independent director should also play roles.
