The impact of IR4 on corporate governance of listed companies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


The digital revolution transforms business models and presents new privacy issues and ethical dilemmas. Research by MIT Sloan CISR reports that U.S. listed companies that have a digitally savvy board show substantially better financial performance.
What is a digitally savvy board? What are the differences between the old and the
new world? What are the new ethical dilemmas and how do you prevent making
the same mistakes as big tech? Why does innovation fail so often within the existing structures of established companies? Why does the three lines of defense model for risk management have an inhibitory effect on innovation in practice? The author discusses these questions and provides suggestions for improvement of corporate governance of established companies. In the next chapter, the author provides rules of the road for how established companies can monetize their data including some pitfalls for established companies and discusses a number of ethical dilemmas that companies encounter in practice when implementing new digital technologies and services.
