Management Fatigue Identification Tool

In brief: During times of crisis, it can often feel as if all hands are on deck, and the board can often try to do too much. The board has a responsibility to oversee management’s performance, but during a crisis, the need for more frequent communication between the board and management can become burdensome, even bordering on fatigue, as management tries to satisfy the board’s requests while managing the crisis at the ground level at the same time. This can result in management not doing their best work. This tool helps directors identify management fatigue and correct any board actions that may contribute to this effect.

  • Directors will learn how to spot warning signs of management fatigue.
  • Tips on how to alleviate management fatigue during a crisis are provided.
  • This tool provides guidance on how to avoid critical fault lines between board and management in the future.
