Digitalisation and Boards of Directors: Challenges and Best Practice
Digitalisation and new business models have an effect both on boards of directors and on the working relationship between boards of directors and CEOs. The Valora Lab aims to give a small, select group of members of boards of directors and CEOs an insight into how digitalisation, business agility and transformation can be addressed and supported at board level. The topics to be covered range from digitalisation from an executive point of view, to classifying problems and obligations for boards of directors that arise as a result of digitalisation, to how to come up with potential approaches to counter these new challenges.
The objectives, criteria and challenges inherent to finding and integrating suitable candidates will be explained, and further ways in which boards of directors can gain digital expertise will also be discussed.
The new requirements for governance in relation to innovation management will also be covered.
Against this backdrop, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the CEO of Valora will present some of their experiences, findings and implemented measures. Moderator: Pascal Forster.
The floor will then be opened for a discussion and exchange of views and experiences among the guests. There will be a drinks reception to round off the event.
This Lab is not being held publicly. The workshop is exclusively for members of the Advisory Board who execute at least one mandate and for CEOs. Please register by 7 September 2017 by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Valora Lab is a closed event for invited guests only. Although it is being held as part of the Digital Festival, there is no obligation to purchase a festival ticket.
