Changing Board work in the age of uncertainty and innovation

The boards role and remits are changing.

The boundaries of the board’s governance and influence have moved beyond a single organisation to ensure needed value creation. This is especially needed in a world that needs to cater for more sustainable operations in a world that is filled with uncertainty and changes at increasing speed.

To keep abreast of technological change and innovation, the board needs to ensure that its innovation and risk agendas are up-to-date, and that innovation is incorporated into the organisation’s strategy review. 

To provide effective leadership, board members need to actively network to establish themselves as a trusted source of knowledge in the ecosystem. This will allow them to build consensus among a wider group of peers beyond the board’s organisation and ensure that they also take ownership of decisions by the board.
