A View at the Top: Boardroom Trends in Britain’s Top 100 Companies

Boards have never been under as much scrutiny as they are today. Boards are being examined in ways not foreseeable 20 years ago due to a variety of converging pressures including economic and political instability, globalisation, rising inequality, and a rash of high profile board failures. In light of this, we asked how boards have evolved over this time in the hope that they are better prepared to respond to these changes. We started by looking back at the 1996 report ‘A View at the Top’ which was a pioneering look at the demography and composition of the UK’s FTSE 100 boards. We then replicated that same research 21 years later and found that in many of the headline-grabbing areas there has been change, sometimes radical change.
