 Here are the multiple perspectives of shaping a culture-savvy boardroom.

Cultural Savvy Corporate Board Digital means to break down the past and lead toward the future with a quantum leap. Culture is the "fabric" of an organization and habits/behaviors/practices being woven into that fabric. By culture, we mean the way things are done and allowed to be done in the organization every day. The totality of mindset, attitudes, behaviors, practices, values, vision, mission, strategy, and risk appetite is the definition of culture. The corporate board plays a critical role in setting guidelines, envisioning the future of the business, overseeing business strategy, setting the right cultural tones and driving transformative change smoothly.

In the globalized business environment, very often, people of various nations or cultures are in various facets/functions.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 7 million page views with 8500+ blog postings in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
