The role that IT plays in value creation should concern the very top levels of management. That being so, your company's board of directors should be well versed in what is happening in IT .
Chances are that's not the case.
In fact, my research suggests that we have thought very little about what boards of directors know about IT, what they should know about IT and what they should do about IT. The smart people in this industry must start focusing on board competence.
