The board of DSI has decided, as the final step in all the earlier changes, to adjust the governance of the organization. The model with a General Board is being replaced by a Supervisory Board with a director-manager. The Supervisory Board will be operational in the autumn of 2023.
When DSI was founded in 1999, a governance structure was chosen in which industry organizations from the sector joined. These branches represented their constituency on the board. Over time, there have been regular discussions about alternative governance structures, and several adjustments have been made. In recent years, DSI has worked with a broad General Board with an independent chairman. A Managing Board was formed from the General Board, and the director was responsible for the day-to-day management of the organization.
In 2023, after considering various governance models, the General Board decided to establish a Supervisory Board with a director-manager. This model, which has become common for smaller foundations and associations, best suits the renewed and smaller DSI and makes decision-making faster and more flexible. The involved industry organizations will have a different role, anchored in the new statutes.
