So, this is interesting.
I am actually considering doing just the opposite here. We have a GCC with our company, but I want to create a Board circle that sets the vision and strategy for the GCC and also holds the GCC (LL, in particular) accountable to deliver on that vision and mission. This seems to be the way that Glassfrog is setup.
I'm curious why folks are going in the opposite direction ... is there something fundamentally flawed with this approach that I am not seeing?
