dc.description.abstract Change has become important and unavoidable in today’s business environment. The dynamic business environment of today requires organisations to appoint leaders of a required calibre. To effectively appoint such leaders especially at the board level, criteria is required to determine the skills possessed by an individual. The study was conducted to investigate and establish the existence of criteria for appointment of board members in selected public enterprises within the road industry in Namibia. The qualitative, exploratory and descriptive research design was used to conduct this study. Purposive and convenience sampling methods were used to select participants for the study. The questionnaire was developed and distributed to the target groups, which were Board Members, Chief Executive Officers, Senior Managers and Company Secretaries of the selected public enterprises. Findings showed that there are no criteria in appointing board members in the selected public enterprises within the road industry in Namibia. The study concludes that lack of criterion led to appointing individuals who were not specialised in the industry and lack skills to discharge their responsibilities. It is recommended that best practices of appointing board members of public enterprises in the road industry be applied, in Namibia en_US
