Culture: Ignoring Company Values Can Cause an Existential Crisis (INC.)

Boeing was already buried in bad publicity after two of their new 737-MAX airplanes crashed in a six-month span, killing 346 people. The tragedies were exacerbated by the revelation that Boeing dodged Federal Aviation Administration requirements in their rush to get the new planes into service.

Boards of directors in the tunnel of the coronavirus crisis

There are areas that boards and their chairs should prioritize when guiding their organizations through unprecedented uncertainty. Few boards of directors had a playbook for managing the crisis we face today. Now, even fewer have a clear perspective on when and how their organizations will emerge from the tunnel the coronavirus pandemic has forced them to enter. The light at its end is very dim. Uncertainty is high for most sectors and businesses, with boards and management teams struggling to find solid ground, which makes it all the more vital that boards are deliberate about where they focus their attention.

Lessons from 2008 for Management and the Board

Looking back to 2008, the executive and board leadership that did best for their shareholders focused on taking the necessary steps—regardless of then-current popularity with lenders, investors, or otherwise—to preserve their key managers and employees, to maintain liquidity, and to preserve and position the company for recapturing value as the crisis receded, including doing what they needed to in order to remain independent. Simply put, the principled and nimble boards and CEOs did best, often in the face of anxious investors clamoring for more short term fixes or exits.
