Developing Effective Directors in a Global Context
The International Directors Programme is our flagship course in corporate governance and is a unique educational experience that aims to develop effective directors for the global business scene. Today’s supervisory boards have to contend with a host of new pressures, challenges and risks in addition to evaluating the performance of the CEO and senior executives. They must therefore set the company’s strategic direction, often across diverse product markets and geographies, and monitor the firm’s risk profile.
Set within an international context that is unique in director education, this programme offers practical and tested frameworks and tools to sharpen judgment and decision-making skills. It also augments the oversight abilities of directors seeking to boost their existing competencies or to be better prepared for new board mandates. In three focused modules, you will master strategies for the following fundamental areas: board effectiveness and dynamics; board decision-making and oversight; and director effectiveness and development.
How you benefit
- Board operations: Understand the broader context in which boards operate and the responsibilities that come with a board mandate.
- Knowledge and competencies: Gain an overview of the knowledge and competencies expected from directors in today’s environment
- Director-specific skills: Develop the specialised skills that contribute to the creation of an effectively performing board culture
- Ability to challenge executives: Enhance your ability to challenge executives through positive exchanges focused on the key issues that underpin corporate performance
The International Directors Programme is designed for chairs and non-executive directors of listed and private corporations, government agencies and organisations, and non-profits. It is also aimed at CEOs, COOs, CFOs and other C-suite executives, as well as family members and controlling shareholders of boards of large family companies. Senior professionals from the institutional investment community and senior partners of professional firms who serve boards can also benefit from the programme.
Participants must demonstrate that they possess the credibility and competences required to assume board-level responsibilities, and have sufficient exposure to board matters to fully benefit from and contribute to a programme that involves role-play, simulations and exchanges with other participants.
