Top 10 Trends and Changes on The Board Agenda 2018: Digitization – and Digital Committees

It’s not going away. On the contrary, the impact from digitization is flooding all industries with an unprecedented speed now. Organizations undergo heavily needed transformations and business models go through changes of a magnitude that was hard to envisage a decade ago. Boards need to keep up to speed with this – and it won’t be easy for everyone. On many boards, there is still a majority of +60 year old digital immigrants, and if they are lucky they might consciously be aware that there are things that they do not know. More unfortunate are those who are unconsciously incompetent – and who don’t realize what hit the company until it is too late.

To not end up like Blockbuster, Kodak or Nokia, boards need to invest heavily in their own development within this area. They can’t rely solely on calling in consultants or other digital experts from time to time, but must either go through extensive training to catch up with the development – or simply add the needed skill sets to the board by prioritizing this set of competencies in the board’s succession plan for itself. Constant care and due diligence from the board needs to be the guideline.

Our judgment here is that numerous boards across the world will anchor the responsibility for overseeing the board’s and the company’s digital development in a newly established “Digital Committee”.
