6 Challenges Boards Should Expect in 2016

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Popular show guest Cindy Fornelli of the Center for Audit Quality joins host TK Kerstetter to look into the crystal ball and predict issues and challenges that will face boards in 2016.  

This show touches on the issues that faced many boards during the previous year. Fornelli also looks at the bigger picture and cautions that, as disruptive forces grow, boards must be vigilant to avoid distractions that can change their core tasks at hand.

One prediction, in particular, will be interesting to watch and certainly debated: The mandatory retirement age on corporate boards will continue to creep toward 75 years old. Fornelli and Kerstetter discuss whether this predicted trend is a good thing or whether it hurts the need for board refreshment?
