Title: Board of Directors: Theory and Practice in Dairy Cooperatives
Authors: Ajit Kanitkar, N V Belavadi
Issue/Year: Oct-1993
Section: Research
Abstract: Theoretically, the Board of Directors (BOD) of organizations belonging to corporate as well as cooperative sectors is expected to have a long-term, strategic focus. However, a critical difference between the BOD of a corporate organization and a cooperative organization is that the latter is constituted by user-members and are, therefore, expected to truly reflect user-owners' commitment to the organization. Against this backdrop, this paper by Ajit Kanitkar and N V Belavadi examines the dominant concerns of the BOD of cooperative sector organizations by analyzing the agenda-items of Board meetings of federated dairy cooperatives. According to the authors, the BOD in this sector is more concerned with day-to-day operations than strategic issues.

In this paper, the authors present a conceptual framework integrating the three dimensions which, apart from providing useful insights on their relationship, would also serve as a basic template for CBS configuration design.
