Boards in Challenging Times - Extraordinary Disruptions 2

Alvarez & Marsal in conjunction with Henley Business School have launched a detailed research study entitled “Boards in Challenging Times: Extraordinary Disruptions.” Providing guidance on how Boards should address unique, extraordinary disruptions, the report analyses the real-life experiences of more than 70 seasoned U.K. Executive and Non-Executive Board Directors, and includes 4 detailed case studies.

Four distinct types of disruption are identified in the findings, as well as a three stage framework of leadership approaches, qualities and core disciplines that should be used to tackle each type. The research report also reveals that current guidance in the U.K. Corporate Governance Code does not take sufficient account of the extraordinary responses required from Boards facing extreme disruptions

The research was overseen by a Steering Committee chaired by Sir Peter Gershon, Chairman of Tate & Lyle and National Grid plc and comprising Mark Clare, former CEO, Barratt Developments plc, Mark Gillett, Global Head of Value Creation, Silver Lake, Stephen Hester, Group CEO, RSA Insurance Group plc, Malcolm McKenzie, Managing Director, Alvarez & Marsal and Professor Andrew Kakabadse, Henley Business School.
