Description

Better your skills. BETTER YOUR BOARD.

This program, jointly developed by the Institute of Corporate Directors and the Rotman School of Management, is offered nationally at Canada’s top business schools to help board directors clarify their governance mission and fully exercise their leadership potential.

Overview

The Directors Education Program was jointly developed by the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and the Rotman School of Management to help board directors clarify their governance mission and fully exercise their leadership potential as a board member.

Delivered by Canada’s leading corporate governance experts, it is a highly interactive 12-day course that incorporates roundtable discussions, real-time case studies and on-point insights from world-renowned faculty, experts in the field of board behaviours and executives in residence.

The goal of the program is to build competencies deemed necessary to be an effective director.

Completion of the DEP is the first step towards obtaining the professional ICD.D designation granted by the Institute of Corporate Directors. This is the only professional designation for Canadian directors recognized both nationally and internationally.

Program Details

This four, 3-day module program connects participants to an extended network of leading directors who bring governance best practices to Canada and the business community. The Directors Education Program is the first step in attaining the ICD.D designation granted by the Institute of Corporate Directors–the professional body that represents the Canadian director community in Canada.

Module I: Guiding Strategic Direction and Risks

Module I provides a comprehensive overview of fundamental board tasks and processes, including director legal duties and responsibilities, overseeing strategic decisions, as well as managing group dynamics and decision-making in the boardroom.

Module II: Monitoring Financial Strategy, Risks and Disclosure

Module II focuses on the board's responsibility to oversee and monitor financial performance, health and disclosure. Sessions illustrate how to effectively organize and run audit committees, and include exercises to improve personal effectiveness in context of the board meeting.

Module III: Guiding Human Performance

Module III focuses on the board's role in enhancing human performance, including the appointment, evaluation, compensation and renewal of the executive team. This module also examines how to improve board effectiveness through board selection, director skill development and director evaluation.

Module IV: Assessing Enterprise Risk and Directing Extreme and Unique Events

Participants integrate their learning across the four modules by helping them identify and prioritize the wide range of issues influencing their organizations. Specific topics include mergers and acquisitions, and technology investment. Time will also be spent on exercises designed to improve communication within the boardroom.
