How can organizations build effective boards that can thrive in the era of Industry 4.0? Our Building Effective Boards Program explores the current best practices of corporate governance, the changing demands placed on directors and how to harness the “healthy tension” that can unlock the performance of organizations.

Designed for in-person or online delivery, the program is broken into small “sprints” that blend insights shared from experts in corporate governance with facilitated executive dialogue that addresses real issues that are affecting board performance.
