Digitization on Boards 2nd Edition - Executive Summary

Are Boards Ready For Digital Disruption?

The pressures surrounding digital disruption and security are intensifying. And the digitization debate is gathering pace. Yet when it comes to exactly how organizations are addressing digitization, the picture remains fragmented and multiple questions surround its role.

To what extent is digital an agent of change for your organization? Should you continue with business as usual? Or deliberately engineer digital into specific parts of your supply chain? Should digitization have a higher purpose, to drive innovation or even transform your business model? If so, in what time frame, and with what resources?

Crucially, to what extent is your Board equipped to ask the right questions, and implement the answers in the right place, at the right time?

In the 2nd half of 2016, Amrop mapped the digital competencies of 300 boards (top 20 stock-listed companies in 15 countries in Europe, plus the US). We looked at the profiles of 3,342 board members. We supplement our analysis with interviews conducted during 2016 and 2017 with board members of listed organizations.
