The role of the Board and Organisational Culture and the rise of Artificial Intelligence

Last week Foley Durham partner, Richard Elstone co-hosted a select group of business leaders in a boardroom lunch discussion with Blackhall & Pearl Group MD, Tim Boyle. Tim spoke to Board and Organisational Culture and the rise of Artificial Intelligence.

As a director you have a role in setting the top from the top, but how do you assess the mood in the middle? Culture can be a competitive advantage, but how as a director do you know that the values and objectives of the firm are not just espoused but enacted and real. Behavioural science and artificial intelligence are converging to provide greater insight into how organisations actually work and not how you are being told they work.


"To Influence behaviour, don't just ask people what they think.

Observe what they do"
