McKinsey has a new study out on which topics are prioritized by the most adaptable boards. Awareness precedes adaptability for individuals, teams, and organizations. You can’t develop something you can’t name, so the act of taking a balcony view to reflect on dynamics, data, and beliefs is foundational for good governance and ongoing adaptability.

The top boards actually address more topics than the norm, and the top topics are:

  • Workforce capability needs
  • Cybersecurity
  • Technology needs
  • Diversity of the organization’s leadership
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Organization’s purpose
  • Geopolitical and/or macroeconomic risks
