Most supervisory board members are business economists or lawyers. There are few trained supervisory boards in the area of digitization and technology, and as a result, supervisory boards with experts in this area are the minority. Advisory boards with experts in this area are the minority. This among many other things, is one reason, why digitization in Europe, especially in the “old economy”, is progressing slowly. Most digital experts, on the other hand, lack the necessary legal and economic knowledge for sound supervisory board work.
Studies have shown that companies with greater diversity on their management board and supervisory board achieve better results . The modern supervisory board has diversity in the areas of age, gender, internationality, origin and expertise (business administration, law, recruiting, digitization, marketing, sales, purchasing)
We dedicate this platform to the Digital and Technical Supervisory Board Member.
