Town Hall: Working with Your Boards
Speaker: Peter Weill, Chairman, MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research
A recent MIT study of all the US listed boards of companies over $1B in revenue found that only 24% of boards were digitally savvy. Those companies performed consistently better, including having 38% higher revenue growth. In this town hall Peter Weill will briefly share the results from the study and engage the Symposium's audience in sharing practices that have worked effectively in helping boards deal with digital issues. We will learn from each other.
