What Is the New Reality for Risk in Banks?


Accountability Isn’t Antiquated — Even If Modern Culture Treats It That Way


The Biggest C-Suite Lesson From the Banking Turmoil Isn’t About Money. It’s About Risk.

How Much Would You Pay to Avoid a Bank Collapse?  We all remember the scene in « It’s a Wonderful Life » when there is a run on the bank, and everyone wants to withdraw their money.

The Gender Gap in IT (and How to Address It)

The world has made tremendous strides in the area of gender equality in recent years.

The IT world shows a particular reluctance to change, with a new report claiming it’s […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a blooming field in the tech sector.   While the concept of artificial intelligence is nothing new, the unveiling of ChatGPT led to a flurry of AI investment early in 2023.

Great Resignation or Great Regret?

Slow and steady wins the race. The old adage is an essential element of long-term professional success. It also rings particularly true in an era defined by instant gratification and impulsive decision-making. Coming out of the pandemic, many workers wanted to use the impetuous shake-up in their work lives to “find greener pastures.” They quit […]

The Importance of Ethics When Hiring an Executive

Looking for the best candidate for your C-suite? Prioritize skills and ethics.   The executive search process can sometimes feel like an intervention. It’s eerily similar to confronting a friend or colleague for an unacceptable pattern of behavior, except in this case, your company is the one in need of external mediation. Executive hires often require […]

The Rise of the CSCO

Three years after the pandemic started, the demand for Chief Supply Chain Officers is higher than ever.  The C-suite contains a prolific and varied number of positions. Each of these comes with its own areas of focus, duties, responsibilities, and of course, its own acronym.   Some top-level positions, like CEO and CFO, are iconic. Others […]

Senate Bill 1 Becomes a Reality: How Will the Supply Chain Adapt?

California has been going through a lot in recent years. Winter storms have left areas ravaged by floods and excessive amounts of rainwater.
