The accelerating pace and intensifying complexity of change are leading to the emergence of a fundamentally different operating reality than incumbent executives and directors have experienced in their careers to date. This shifting business paradigm has profound and immediate implications for boards, and these implications will intensify dramatically over the next 5 to 10 years. These implications are not new, but there is no doubt that all of them have recently become more acute and now pose an urgent challenge to board leaders.
Attendees will receive a copy of the 2019 Blue Ribbon Commission Report.
