Quotes from the book

“I recommend this book for every board chair. Corporate boards have to make sure their companies embrace ai and other digital technologies, yet many directors do not have the background or tools to address this challenge. This book provides a practical framework for boards to do just that.”

Professor Stanislav Shekshnia, Co-director ‘Leading from the chair’ INSEAD Executive Development Program, Co-author Leading a Board: Chairs’ Practices across Europe

“Digital transformation is on every board’s agenda. This book adds a new perspective to the discussion, by providing corporate governance inspiration from thought leaders and an easy-to-apply framework for the role of the board in guiding and supervising AI.”

Fennemiek Gommer, Chair and Non-Executive Director at multiple companies across Europe, Innovation Partner Caracta

“Boards are being asked to step up and address the challenges digitization, including ai, pose for their enterprises. This book offers an easy-to-follow framework that generates discussion on a board level around digitization and the board’s responsibilities to govern ai at both the firm and ecosystem levels. A great tool to drive change where it’s most needed: at the board level!”

Stephanie L. Woerner, Research Scientist & Academic Director, MIT Center for Information Systems Research. Co-author What’s Your Digital Business Model (Harvard Business Review)“

Quotes from the book

This book is a well-researched, thought-through and excellent guide for directors, chairmen, whole boards, and governance experts. It is very practical and pragmatic and demystifies a topic that many directors find daunting at best and incomprehensible at worst. (…) Wholesale reskilling of the workforce will be a key imperative that boards must address as it cuts to sustainability not only of the organisation but society as a whole. AI can and will be a true force for good if its potential and complexities are embraced by boards of directors who will set the tone from the top.”

Helen Pitcher OBE, Previous President of INSEAD Directors Network (IDN); Chairman of Criminal Cases Review Commission, Chairman Advanced Boardroom Excellence, Senior Independent Director One Health Group Ltd, Non-executive Director and Remuneration Chair of United Biscuits and C&C Group plc, President of KidsOut and Advisory Board Member of the Public Chairs Forum and Ministry of Justice Support Services.)
