International Directors Programme
Developing Effective Directors for
Ludo Van der Heyden & Tim Rowley
Today’s supervisory boards have to contend with a host of new pressures, challenges and risks. Held ever more accountable for their organisation’s performance and vitality, they must also set its strategic direction, often across diverse product markets and geographies, while evaluating the performance of the CEO and senior executives, as well as monitoring the firm’s risk profile.
The INSEAD International Directors Programme is a unique educational experience that aims to develop more effective directors. Set within an international context, the programme is aimed at current directors who bring specific competences and credibility to the boards on which they serve and at senior executives and professionals preparing themselves for a board mandate and whose contributions will enhance the programme’s learning environment.
- Understand the broader context in which boards operate and the responsibilities that come with a board mandate
- Provide an overview of the knowledge and competences expected from directors in today’s environment
- Develop skills that contribute to the creation of an effective board culture and performance
- Hone the ability to challenge executives through positive exchanges focused on the key issues that underpin corporate performance
