Obtaining and Verifying Information by CEO
Jean Francois Sonson, Member
I have found that the following things are useful:
1) Ask questions of the person supplying the info to see how confident and convincing he or she is about the information submitted;
2) Through your networks (which are important to have) seek feedback on matters you are not sure about; and
3) There is a pool of expertise among your board members, develop a relationship with them so that you can seek their opinions and feedback on matters that you are not sure about.
This I find is most important.
