Boards of directors and corporate governance in times of disruptive change.
Boards of directors must monitor and approve financial results, oversee the senior management team and comply with legal duties. Regulatory compliance is extremely important, but boards that focus exclusively on these aspects may neglect tasks critical to the company’s long-term development.
This book reflects on the challenges boards face in today’s disruptive context, the critical tasks they should focus on, and the competencies they need to help their companies create sustainable value.
The model proposed by Transforming to Endure outlines the procedures that effective boards must follow and the competencies they need to develop in order to address the major strategic challenges they face. The book furthermore examines how a company’s survival requires focusing on corporate purpose, sustainability, technological disruption and transformation, leadership development, diversity, and corporate culture and governance.
Transforming to Endure, with its interdisciplinary and empirical approach, will help senior managers to respond effectively to the changing environment and successfully deal with the dilemmas and challenges they face.
