group Classified boards are often referred to as "staggered boards". Staggered boards need not be classified, but classified boards are inherently staggered. Then why staggered boards are better than classified simply because classified board members term is between 1 and 8 years which often result in board member complacency and forces directors to develop close reltation with the management.
