Mission Possible

Our Mission

Our Company Launch

In 2013, we launched "The Digital Board" with the vision to change the way that business leaders and IT cohabit this changing world.  Our overarching mission, was to help our clients bridge the uncertainty gap that lies between their strategic vision and the technology opportunity that underpins it. Our research told us two key things:

  1. That Boards want to play a more effective supervisory role in the stewardship of the digital/IT agenda, yet often lack the confidence and knowledge to assess the organisation's ability to manage these large programmes of change.
  2. That CIOs (and aspiring CIOs) need to elevate their approach to be seen as strategic contributors in the boardroom, while also managing ever-increasing amounts of complexity within this rapidly changing technology world.

Working alongside some of the worlds' most talented technology leaders, we bring an unprecedented level of expertise that can help you:

  •   Increase the level of confidence the board has around their strategic technology investments.
  •   Develop and instil a leadership culture within the IT leadership team designed to strengthen and enhance the relationship between IT and the Business.
  •   Identify and recruit the world's best technology leaders for our clients’ IT organisation.

The Digital Board Operates in these areas:

Board Advisory:  Through the introduction of highly experienced non-executive technology leaders, we hope to bring a level of confidence to the board around their strategic technology investments. Our research tells us that boards want to play a more effective supervisory role in the stewardship of the digital/IT agenda yet often lack the confidence and knowledge to assess the organisation's ability to manage these large programmes of change.  The Advisory Board concept was initiated from this understanding.  We help by creating strategic advisory boards made up of some of the world's most admired technology leaders.
Executive Search:  Our team are 100% focused on identifying and assessing world class CIOs and IT leaders and aligning them to the culture and ambition of your organisation. The Executive Search team utilises our vast network of executives around the world to find the best match for our client's needs.  The Leadership Assessment Tool is an essential part of the process, providing the client with a better insight into the candidate profiles.
Leadership Diagnostic:  We have developed a series of diagnostic tools that help CEOs test value from their IT investments through to helping CIOs assess the leadership capability within their top team. Our Leadership Diagnostic tool has been developed as a result of over 500 executive stakeholder meetings and organisations align their leadership teams under a single leadership framework made up of 9 critical leadership by a series of behavioural anchors that help assess the actual level of competency.
IT Value and Governance Diagnostic:  At The Digital Board we recognise that Executive Boards need to take action to address the performance of IT. To improve IT Governance, to ensure that technology spending is directed to the right initiatives, and that it is achieving value for money. We have a framework that allows executives to gain assurance on these perspectives with objectivity and granularity.
