I ran the class on Managing Boards. We focused on:
Considerations for board makeup
Relationship with entrepreneur
The role of the chairman
The importance of having a defined entry/exit process to the board
The interplay between shareholder agreement and board mechanics and practicalities
The class was also presented with two real life situations and asked to explore them like a board and take a vote to reach a conclusion. The decisions were compared with what happened in the real situation and discussed why they came to conclusion that they did.
