CIOs are increasingly eager to put their business strategy and governance knowledge to good use by serving on external boards of directors. Their reasons - personal and professional growth and benefits to their companies - are well founded, according to TK Kerstetter, president and CEO of Board Member, which publishes Corporate Board Member magazine.
For CIOs, "there is probably no better training than board service to understand all of the challenges that a business has to deal with and to learn about other industries," he says. "CIOs can then take this enhanced knowledge back to their current jobs and organisations."
