High performing Boards are adept at monitoring changes in the governance needs and requirements of their companies, dealing with difficult issues, and selectively supporting and challenging their management teams.
The Board's selection and success in adopting governance styles, practices and actions is highly contingent on the company or entity's maturity, development stage, crisis situations and future strategic plans.
Covering the range of entities from listed, government owned, family and not-for-profit businesses, the seminar is designed to create a forum for information sharing, discussion, debate and development of new thought processes and tools for the Board.
Delegates will progress through a Board lifecycle which is representative of a common Board or director's experience, from formation/renewal, performance, assessment and succession. Each section considers appropriate models, tools, practices and actual case studies which provide examples, provoke discussion and create awareness of broader issues.
Whilst it is expected that delegates have a broad knowledge of governance concepts, key governance models will be reviewed in light of local business and regulatory conditions and standards.
