Real-World Perspectives: How COVID-19 is Affecting Corporate Governance

Over the last month, we spoke to boards and managers from eleven organizations across a spectrum of industries and sectors to gain a real-world perspective on the way directors and senior executives are collectively navigating the complex governance challenges posed by COVID-19. We asked them what communication looks like in the virtual boardroom and how they are navigating the challenges of remote work. In what ways are boards getting themselves crisis-ready and preparing for their long-term survival? And what lessons have they learned that they will carry forward into the future?

In our latest report, we discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has both posed an unprecedented governance challenge and ushered in a period of great experimentation: a time for boards to question old habits and test new possibilities, from creative approaches to communication in the virtual boardroom to forging new links with external peers to strengthen the entire ecosystem in which the company operates.
