Over the past decade there has been an expansion of boardroom focus and increased pressure on board members. New areas such as technology, both in companies’ strategy and potential IT risks; crisis management and reputational risk, including how organisations handle crises and how they communicate with stakeholders; and an overall increase in boardroom-shareholder engagement have made the role more demanding. These changes alongside scrutiny from shareholders, regulators, and other stakeholders after the economic crisis that started in 2008 have made the job of the board more challenging than ever.
