Exclusive Excerpt from the Board Management Software Buyer’s Guide
The following is an exclusive excerpt from the Board Management Software Buyer’s Guide.
Life is unpredictable — as the pandemic reminded us with the subtly of a horn. Back in 2019, when we first published this guide offering advice for purchasing board management software, we couldn’t foresee the rapid acceleration toward virtual meetings and digital governance necessitated by Covid-19.
As March rapidly became December, it became clear the remote conferencing tools that many businesses leveraged when our offices were still brimming with activity were now insufficient.
And it’s easy to understand why. If effective decision-making were as simple as getting everyone on the phone at the same time, then we’d have transitioned ages ago to an entirely remote workforce.
But today’s conference technologies like Zoom, GoToMeeting, and FacetTme share the same failings — they are designed for conversation but do little to enhance decision making. They don’t provide data, structure information, organize thinking. They were never made for end-to-end remote governance.
Board management software was made precisely for this moment. Technology that enables directors to act with force on new information and rapidly pivot their strategies, no matter where they are.
We’ve learned a lot about how leaders worldwide have leveraged board management technology to protect their businesses, help their workers, pivot strategies, and carefully plan their road to recovery. We’ve taken these lessons and included them throughout this second edition buyer’s guide.
We sincerely hope you and your team find this guide useful as you consider upgrading your digital infrastructure and advancing your governance in 2021 and beyond.
