Sarbox and other compliance rulings have pushed some companies to adopt e-governance tools like board portals. But there's a lot more to be gained through keeping executives informed about the business' operations.
In "E-Governance Is Good Governance," from "Internet Management for Nonprofits," authors Dottie Schindlinger and Leanne Bergey define e-governance and examine how Web-based technologies like board portals can improve leadership and management.
