About the course

Well beyond the traditional supervision of the management by the Board of Directors, the governance of the next decade will take root in deeply held values, but also in an optimized strategic and financial management in order to establish good governance practices.

The foundations of this value-creating approach do not only address the competence and the engagement of directors, but also their credibility and their legitimacy.

With increasingly complex organizations and the rise of activist stakeholders, shareholders want to be able to count on competent and credible directors.

The Issues and challenges of a value-creating governance® series in collaboration with the Institute for governance of private and public organizations (IGOPP) provides tangible answers to the specific needs of directors, managers and entrepreneurs willing to participate actively in the growth of their organization.

JMEC_IGOPP The program is a collection of half-day workshops that aims to grasp the evolution of governance, and to understand the essential role that governance plays in the success of an organization nowadays: a ‘’value-creating governance®.” You can sign up for a session, or the entire series. You will acquire a good knowledge of governance models as well as relevant aspects of directorships like strategy, finance, legal and ethics, and you will familiarize yourselves with the new rules and best practices of governance.
