The boardroom in the digital age

‘The ideal is a balance between innovation and risk; integrating the board’s thinking about “old” and “new”. Boards may wish to seek a mix of skills which will both agitate for change and engage with the core IT issues of legacy constraints, quality of service, data integration and cyber risk.’

Risk culture – view from the board

‘It takes time to develop a new culture which needs to be accepted by all involved. We all know that senior leaders should live and breathe the values, and all processes and policies must reinforce them. Boards will need to put more time into their oversight of key elements such as the review of individual behaviours during the performance management process – “how” I have done my job as well as “what have I done”.’
