Sustaining performance through active ownership
Value Creation for Owners and Directors is a five-day programme designed to develop the skills and knowledge for highly effective ownership and board membership. Due to a significant shift of responsibility for company performance and sustainability (that is, value creation and preservation) from management to the boardroom, business owners and directors need to play an increasingly active and critical role in strategic guidance, oversight and effective decision-making.
This programme focuses on the key areas of value creation, including finance, governance, strategy, leadership and organisational skills. Through specifically developed INSEAD frameworks and tools, the programme provides business owners and directors with the skills that will enable them to incorporate the concept of value creation in a more systematic, principled and disciplined approach.

- Skills to create board culture: Develop skills that contribute to the creation of a high-performing board culture.
- Ability to challenge: Hone the ability to challenge other directors, investors, executives and experts through positive exchanges focused on the key issues that underpin value creation.

In addition, the programme may be of interest to: investors; senior professionals from the institutional investment community as well as strategic investment units; and professionals from firms that serve boards and their committees.
