Advising is used interchangeably for leaders and executives in support of making business decisions with expert knowledge they can depend on. Sometimes advisors act as sub committees to existing committees over a particular business area, as a sub committee to the board of directors or as individual advisors to the executives directly. No matter the advising structure, companies and corporations alike rely on advisors' experience to act in the gap of knowledge towards informed decision making. Advisors are not involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.
Whereas board members or boards of directors exist to oversee, govern and regulate the company's operational profitability. Board members have historically had backgrounds in finance and law or were investors in the company. Today’s board members reflect a vast variety of business acumen, entrepreneurial backgrounds and financial expertise used to strengthen the operational opportunity available for companies to profit consistently. Board members meet regularly to make decisions based on the best interest of the shareholders including vetting executives to be appointed, managerial and financial strategies.
