After two decades working with and on boards, I have come to the conclusion that boards are not fit for purpose in this age of complexity and disruption. We have everything from increasing global competition to climate change and security threats. We have a tsunami of generational transition occurring. We have digital disruption to business models. We have technology advancing at a compounding rate. These add up to seismic changes not only to the way that we make money or deliver community services, but also to the way that we live.
