How innovation is impacting board membership

Charles Cohen, CEO of Probability and one of the speakers on the Digital Money Forum's panel on innovation, just made this interesting comment:

"UK boards of large companies tend to be dominated by accountants. US boards tend to be dominated by lawyers. Now, technologists are moving up the organization and we are possibly in a generational change where in a few years boards will be dominated by technologists."

I like that. So I could still have a job for a long time to come.

This finding has interesting connections to the credit crisis. Designed by Accountants and Lawyers?
