Good governance lies at the core of any organization’s growth and success. Boards have a crucial role to play in this governance wherein they ensure that the company is running with efficiency. Board governance affirms that all stakeholders and shareholders involved with the company get their expected returns while also keeping the company on track of its long-term and short-term goals. Over the years, and especially since the pandemic, companies have caught onto the fact that technology can be of a mighty help in further facilitating their board governance. The Covid-19 pandemic taught the world that relying only on human resources may not be enough in tumultuous times. Switching to technological solutions for better board governance has proven effective time and again.
