IT Governance in the Board Room
Steven de Haes,
University of Antwerp –
Disruptive new technologies are increasing and have an important influence on the business we are doing. Previously, the board could delegate, ignore or avoid it, but that is no longer the case. Yet, it seems that 80% of boards of directors are still looking away. Digital transformation seems to be ‘the elephant in the boardroom’.
In this session, we will address that boards need to extend their governance accountability, from often a mono-focus on finance and legal as proxy to corporate governance, to include technology and provide digital leadership and organizational capabilities to ensure that the enterprise’s IT sustains and extends the enterprise’s strategies and objectives.
