“The Board is like the team which pilots a ship. Every member of the team has a vital role to play. The team is required to know the destination and what the ship might encounter along the journey. The instruments on board give timely warnings of impending challenges to the ship. Team members are then expected to give appropriate guidance and instructions to crew members to deal with the arising situations. From time to time the ship is upgraded and team members have to be trained and be familiarized with the operational requirements. Sometimes new team members who are familiar with the newly installed equipment have to be recruited. Sometimes team members are transferred to other ships to pass on their skills.”
