Introduction Digital Boardroom: 100 Q&As
The board of directors as the de facto
guardian of modern organizations has
an important role to play in steering the
organization toward the uncharted
water and blurring business territories
because they oversee strategy
management and set the policy for
driving changes.
Introduction Digital Boardroom: 100 Q&As
Digital directorship goes Deeper over
louder;
from Compliance to Performance to
Excellence;
from homogeneity to heterogeneity to
High-Maturity.
Chapter 1 The Digital Board’s Composition Inquiries
The boardroom composition will directly
impact on how they lead and which tone they
will set for the entire organization to follow.
While there are many components of
leadership, one of the most important ones is
the ability to adapt, model and influence
change.
Chapter 2 A Digital Board’s Digital Inquiries
Digital is about the accelerating speed of
changes and the abundance of
information. Digital boards as the
strategic advising role are the
“mastermind” behind digital
transformation to oversee strategies, drive
innovation, catalyze changes, and monitor
performance.
.
Chapter 3 The Digital Board’s Strategy Inquiries
Digital boards help the business
management identify and close strategy blind
spots, pinpoint decision fatigue, explore the
boardroom fundamental and strategic
oversight responsibility, and monitor its
implementation and performance results,
amend wherever necessary to match changing
marketplace conditions.
Chapter 4 The Digital Board’s IT Inquiries
Given how applying IT is becoming so
intrinsically important to so many different
enterprises across industrial sectors, digital
board directors should ask more insightful
questions about IT because leading companies
across industrial sectors claim they are in the
information management business.
Chapter 5 The Digital Board’s Leadership Inquiries
Contemporary digital boards should set the
critical tones from leadership grooming to
talent development to culture cultivating,
to ensure the right people are put in the
right positions for leading digital
transformation and improving the digital
leadership effectiveness and maturity.
Conclusion
● Leadership is all about change and
directorship is about steering the
business toward the right direction.
Digital transformation is in every
forward-thinking company’s top
agenda; innovation is the light every
organization is pursuing, and
digitization becomes the new normal
of business expansion.
