Stewards of the Future: Boardroom or C-Suite?

October 2014 Future States Forum Discussion

In the new knowledge economy, in which constant newness is the norm, corporate and government leaders must possess an exquisite ability to anticipate and prepare for change. But how can they accomplish this while running the day-to-day operations of the organization? What role can – and should – an organization’s board of directors play in looking ahead?

We brought together a diverse group of senior thought leaders, most having served on multiple boards, to discuss the following:

  • How the knowledge economy is driving the need for greater diversity in the boardroom
  • The role boards must take to help make decisions in the face of risk and uncertainty
