The Deloitte Global Boardroom Program's new research of directors and corporate leaders reveals underinvestment in technology and uncovers gaps in board engagement on digital transformation.
In early 2022 the Deloitte Global Boardroom Program surveyed more than 500 directors and C-suite executives and spoke to leaders, directors, and subject matter specialists to find out how boards are managing and engaging in their technology investments. We explored if boards are stepping up to meet the new demands of expanded technology use and what they are doing to ensure that technology investments are linked to strategic objectives.
The research revealed that board members lack the knowledge they need to ask informed questions and ensure technology is being driven by strategy, not the other way around. More broadly, this is creating a chasm between the level of engagement organisations need and what’s commonly taking place in the boardroom.
