Play a meaningful, advisory role in the governance of your firm’s strategy within the context of an increasingly digital landscape

Only 22% of board members say they understand their firm’s strategy. A key reason for this is many board members lack expertise on strategy or understanding of the new rules of strategy in a digital world.

Unfortunately, without a deep understanding of strategy and the role that the board needs to play in governing strategy, board members cannot play a meaningful, advisory role in corporate strategy.

Board and Strategy for Boards enables board members to play a meaningful, advisory role in the governance of their firm’s strategy within the context of an increasingly digital landscape.
