Keeper – Jim Walcott – Sponsored by Northwest Arkansas Business Journal

In the first year of CEO Forum I, Jim Walcott offered this guideline when discussing an optimal role of a board of director, “Head in, fingers out.”

While from time to time, the board of directors may direct other parties to get there fingers into a specific area and report back to the board of directors, categorically, the members of the CEO Forum felt Jim’s guideline was quite valuable.  Accordingly, we are including it here as a Keeper for others to find and consider.

Thanks Jim Walcott!

Jim is CEO of Weldon, Williams & Lick, Fort Smith, AR.
