"New regulations, coupled with higher expectations and increased scrutiny from a number of stakeholder groups, necessitate that for board members to be effective they must adopt a broad view of their companies and have the ability to oversee and manage a variety of significant strategies and their relative risks."

“Our responsibility at INSEAD is to review board governance practices across the world that promote performance with accountability. Over time we hope to build greater trust in the public that business is a strong force for improving our societies.”
