In today's complex and change-oriented society, the importance of the Company Board is increasing. The board and its highly selected members are now being challenged across a vide variety of areas.
Many businesses in Norway have started on an international journey. This places new requirements on the Board's ability to deal with additional market complexities, new competitive arenas as well as cultural differences. In addition comes often a new flora of social, ethical and moral dilemmas. Technological innovation gains momentum across all industries and often has an exponential development. Traditional value chains are affected overnight and the competitive environment changes - today's competitors may soon be tomorrow's partners.
In this landscape the Board must be competent, informed and able to challenge the administration's adaptability to shape the company's future. The Boards role as an inspiring, competent and challenging sparring partner must be balanced with the necessary control and appropriate corrective tool box. The board member of the future must be competent and motivated to invest the time and effort required. Often, to many board this requires new members with the desired skills, competences and insight.
Regulatory requirements, compliance, social responsibility, openness and transparency are important issues on the Board's agenda. Today's society expects Norwegian companies to be leading by example, and the boards are more often than not immediately exposed when there is discrepancy between theory and practice. This increase the requirements on board members expertise, experience, personal skills, professionalism and ability to handle situations when the public spotlight is turned on.
