In this chapter we reflect on the ongoing megatrend of digitalization in relation to boards of directors. We define and discuss the digital transformation and its consequences for societies and corporations as well as how corporations cope with digitalization inside and outside the boardroom. Furthermore, we examine and discuss accountabilities and competencies for boards and board members in the digital era. The chapter concludes with an analysis of different layers in which digitalization and the digital transformation of society may influence boards and governance.
