This toolkit was designed to help boards monitor their effectiveness in taking up accountability for governing digital assets.
Boards of directors are ultimately accountable for strategic decision-making and control in organizations. Financial and legal matters dominate the agendas of board meetings, which is often reflected in board composition. But what about IT-related matters? This is a prominent question in an era where IT is a crucial contributing factor to the competitiveness of many organizations. Indeed, more and more organizations are very dependent on IT for the creation of their business value.
Digital disruption is all around us, and a vast number of organizations around the globe is actively thinking about digital transformation. Yet empirical evidence indicates that boards of directors are not as involved in IT-related strategic decisionmaking and control as they should be. In this context, this toolkit is written for boards who are seeking guidance on how to take up accountability for governing their digitals assets in their organizations.
The creation of this toolkit is based on an extensive research program installe by the University of Antwerp - Antwerp Management School, CEGEKA, KPMG Belgium and Samsung Belgium on the role of the board in IT governance. You can read the results of our research at www.antwerpmanagementschool.be/ boarditgov. Based on our research findings and input from several board members, we have built this toolkit that can help boards to monitor their effectiveness in taking up accountability for governing digital assets.
