Increased shareholder activism and the celebrity status of individuals like Jack Welch and Bill Gates are placing corporate boards under the microscope. Corporate Boards: New Strategies for Adding Value at the Top is an outgrowth of a provocative article published in the Harvard Business Review in 1999 by Jay A. Conger, Edward E. Lawler III and David L. Finegold, all colleagues at the University of Southern California's Center for Effective Organizations. They argue that, with technology at the heart of 21st-century business, corporate directors need to recognize the value of knowledge as a strategic asset, putting their focus on meeting not only the demands of shareholders but also those of stakeholders, including employees and the no-longer-neatly-defined global communities in which they operate.
