Governing in a COVID-19 World
Board meetings have another level of complexity now. Balancing the need to govern the present with the vital focus on future sustainability and strategy is more challenging than normal as the world adjusts to the COVID-19 crisis. Many boards are working remotely while their organisations confront employee, customer and supplier health concerns, as well as financial threats and risk.
And actually running and participating in mostly virtual meetings may be new territory for many. Ranging from how the Chairman best leads discussion and ensures everyone can contribute, to the challenges of running a virtual AGM, to debates about purpose, to how to get the best out of under pressure executives, we have been impressed by the approaches companies have adopted, and how swiftly.
We've been gathering insights and tips for how to most effectively govern in this new environment, and will add others to this page as they are published.
