October 6, 2020, Opinion: "Boards are facing a complex new reality as a result of Covid-19. The new environment is characterized by pressures and demands from various stakeholder groups, heightened expectations for societal engagement and corporate citizenship, and radical uncertainty about the future. These factors are complicating board decision-making and challenging the shareholder-centric model of governance that has guided boards and business leaders for the past several decades. A board’s ability to deliberate in a thorough and thoughtful, but efficient, manner and come to a considered conclusion around key issues will be a critical aspect of its effectiveness in the post-Covid era."
