Forces of change and disruption are growing more powerful in business by the day: from trade wars and ethical pressures to heightened compliance. But none is more all-pervading than technology. A recent survey found 95 percent of board members ranked technology as the highest priority for the board.

It is important, however, to divide the technology issues the board must address into two categories: (1) how technology is demanding changes in the governance of major companies. (2) how technology is disrupting the core markets of the firm.

  • Understand key technologies and how they affect businesses
  • Learn from a real-world example about the deployment of blockchain today
  • Gain insight on the way boards are dealing with tech disruption
