Opportunity, Boards, talent, and culture, McKinsey & Company
  • Many companies realize that human capital is incredibly strategic, and that attracting, developing, retaining, and deploying that talent is a real source of competitive advantage. For the board, that involves a delicate balancing act because executing this is the role of management but it is the board’s role to ensure governance.
  • When you create a constructive relationship between the CEO and the board, extraordinary things happen.
  • The CEO’s behaviors are quickly copied throughout the organization.
  • The culture needs to be owned by the senior leadership.
  • One other area of culture where the board can be really powerful is around lifelong learning. From the boardroom down to the engine room, everybody’s skills are growing obsolete faster and faster, so one of the critical success factors, both for individuals and institutions, is having a thirst for learning and an external orientation.
        Lesson learned, The importance of culture, McKinsey & Company
        • The reason culture is increasingly on the agenda is because there is a huge downside when you get it wrong. We have seen many great organizations stumble and sometimes even collapse because they had deep cultural issues. 
        • There is also a massive upside when you get it right. 
        • We have data showing that companies with strong cultures outperform by a factor of three their peer sets.
        Lesson learned, Key questions, McKinsey & Company
        • Where do we have the talent to fulfill the promise on that investment, whether that is a greenfield investment or an acquisition? 
        • Are we going to be able to retain that talent?
        • Do we have the talent that will enable us to deliver this? What evidence gives us confidence that we do?
