While it does ensure against entrenchment, it deprives boards that are working well of effective directors at a time when recruiting talented directors is not an easy task. The Duty of Supervision The duty of supervision is a subset of the duty of care, but deals specifically with the effectiveness of the directors in exercising their oversight responsibilities. The duty of supervision addresses what directors should know about the operations of management, how they should come to know it, and what they should do when there is an issue or problem requiring attention.

Many times, directors think that the motives of the other party or parties attempting to force change do not represent the best interests of the shareholders as a whole, and as a result, the directors are duty bound to oppose the effort. In many cases they are correct in doing so. Fulfilling the duty not to entrench is more dependent on following good business practices in evaluating the corporate performance and the performance of management and the board than on complying with the law. Some observers advocate term limits to avoid entrenchment.

WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF DIRECTORS? The states define the roles of directors in terms of duties. As we will note, Delaware and Virginia differ in how those duties are interpreted and articulated. In addition, in publicly owned companies, the Securities and Exchange Commission administers regulatory requirements imposed on the corporation, and hence the board, particularly with regard to insider (stock) trading and full and timely disclosure of information. The stock exchanges also have rules that prescribe certain responsibilities, enforced through the standards required for listing on the exchange.
