Leading a Board at “The Speed of Instant”

Pin It

On Monday, a box from UPS showed up.  In it were copies of The Corporate Board Magazine for March/April 2011.  If you are a subscriber, I can appreciate how much you enjoy getting your copy and reading it.  Everything about the magazine speaks to a quality that is becoming more rarefied from the clean, easy-to-read type to the feel of the paper.

I was so excited to see it, as it contained an article I wrote called: “Leading a Board at “The Speed of Instant.” It is written for board chairs to gain an understanding of how technology is changing their boardroom and business.  I just love being witness to the social technology movement.

Thanks to my Editor, Ralph Ward who said it well in his introduction to my piece:

“Technology has become a staple of the boardroom over the past decade. Today we see it reshaping the parameters of corporate governance itself.

Electronic board books and board portals are shaking up what happens in the boardroom, of course, but online social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn will force directors to rethink how they reach out to stakeholders.”

Special thanks to Lisa Beth Lentini, Senior Corporate Counsel at Best Buys, and Rick Altman, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Radian Group.

Your leadership and support is an essential element in helping your boards experience the benefits from adopting boardroom technology.  So appreciate your help, especially in proxy season.

You can get a copy of the article by putting your email in the sign up box to the right.  You’ll be sent an email with a link to the article.

Do give it a read and let me know what you think board chairs can do to improve their board’s effective use of technology.
