Course Description

This course will provide participants with a look behind the boardroom doors to evaluate the effectiveness of corporate governance systems.  Today’s corporate directors, and the executive teams with whom they work, are being challenged by the owners of the organization more so than ever to not only protect their interests, but also enhance corporate performance.

As boards already struggle to balance the growing list of regulatory compliance requirements, we are going to identify and explore three key board leadership roles that differentiate good boards from great ones.

We will look at ways the Board can make valuable contributions to value creation and long-term viability by achieving what we will describe during the course as Governance Advantage.
