Knut Olav and Ketil will present a "fresh-off-the-press" BCG study of best practices in Corporate Governance and active ownership. Nordic companies, which consistently rank among the world's top value creators, have shown that top boards take an active role in value creation. Best-in-class boards demand world-class performance, discuss strategy throughout the year, and continuously challenge the core assumptions underlying the strategy. Their members have specific capabilities and experience to support the strategic priorities, and they foster a culture that values feedback and constructive debate.
