188. Leading effectively with the board

• 37 min

Boards are under increasing pressure to navigate a complex business environment, stay on top of accelerating technological advances, manage growing stakeholder expectations, and in some cases, set the organization's ambition level to catalyze change in close collaboration with management.  To discuss how the role of the board is developing in light of these challenges we're joined by Karen McLoughlin, a former CFO who is a long-time board director for Best Buy, among other companies, Steven Sterin, who serves on the boards of DuPont and Kosmos Energy, and Frithjof Lund, a senior partner in our Oslo office and global leader of our Board Services practice.
