UK businesses hurt by lack of techies on Boards of Directors?

Author: JT Smith

"UK companies may be lagging behind their European counterparts because of
their failure to promote IT managers to the board," says a
ZDNet UK story. Interesting thought; if you're looking for a job (in the U.K. or anywhere else), would it be wise to see if the hiring company has at least one IT person on the board? Could this truly be a potential indicator of a company's future, even if it's not in a "high tech" field, given the fact that IT is essential to almost all businesses these days?
