If a board member disagrees with a democratic decision, it is perfectly fine to point that out.
That is not the issue. If the board, as a democratic entity, votes, the result is that of the board, not of individuals. Whenever a member disagrees and wants to post about it, it's nothing more than decent to state that a personal statement is made. That's one of the consequenses of being a board member, having two hats.
Isn't it quite simply this - when I disagree with a decision made by the board, I would like to know that the board member I elected also disagreed?
Of course, but that should be a statement from Per Jessen, community member, not Per Jessen, Board member.
Uh no. They are the same. Only if Per Jessen speaks on behalf of the board would I have to consider the board's opinion or decision. As a board member, I should hope my opinion in board meetings would be the same as expressed publicly.
Would you accept team members that question any decision that was voted on?
Certainly. I would. Professionally, I am a board member in other places. We don't operate as a team, we are there to govern a company based on our personal experiences, opinions and outlook. When a board operates as a team, you only have to look at Raiffeisen Schweiz to see how bad it can go. Or even my local football club.
A company != a community. And I don't care about examples of things going wrong. If you think we're on the wrong track, gather the crowd and bring down the board as an ultimate measure.
Please Gertjan, why not be open for discussion, what is it with the trumpish stance? As an elected or appointed member for a company or a sports club or openSUSE, your obligations are more or less the same. You are there to help govern the <entity> according to your beliefs, opinions and insights.
I am open for discussion, Per. But I don't believe in total transparency where names are involved f.e. or details of conflicts are revealed.
