How will this program benefit your organization?

Organizations are increasingly expected to exhibit good governance. This involves not only directors and Supervisory Board members, but also the employees who interact with them. A good manager is not automatically a good director. Directors do not merely lead people: they must also make decisions for the entire organization and be able to explain these decisions. For good corporate governance and oversight, it is also vital for employees and managers who interact with the Supervisory Board to understand the different roles, to ensure smooth operation of governance and oversight.

  • An organization can ensure proper oversight by teaching employees about the roles and required competencies of directors and Supervisory Board members.
  • Managers are more involved in the organization if they understand how the processes work at the top.
  • Organizations create added value by focusing on governance topics that contribute to their success.

DE TIAS EXPERIENCE OF JAN WILLEM THIJS

“The Management & Governance Master Class uses the latest scientific findings to provide a behind-the-scenes peak into boardrooms. What factors determine assessment and decision quality? It’s not about ratios, but rather behavior, (unconscious) assumptions and personalities on the board. The master class covers both theory and practice. The knowledge you gain is useful in understanding not only Boards of Directors and Supervisory Boards, but any management team and decisions you are involved in.” Jan Willem Thijs - Head of Legal Affairs & Real Estate, Brabant Delta Water Board

PROGRAM DESIGN AND CONTENTS

PROGRAM DESIGN

During the 3-day Management & Governance Master Class, you quickly develop a sharp eye for the latest developments in corporate governance. We focus on governance topics that affect the success of your organization and add value. We delve into the formal requirements, and give full attention to the ins and outs of “good corporate governance” and “soft controls” (behavior and unwritten rules). This allows you to develop a clear view and understanding of the triangle of directors, Supervisory Board members and stakeholders.

PROGRAM CONTENTS

DAY 1

On day 1, we start with the basics: what are the characteristics of effective governance and oversight? Discover the influence of formal and informal rules and the role of stakeholders.

DAY 2

Good governance and effective oversight require insight into boardroom dynamics. What does the Supervisory Board look like, how do members deal with each other, and what does this mean for governance?

DAY 3

The Supervisory Board plays a key role in hiring directors and Supervisory Board members. Learn which competencies play a role here and the areas of tension between directors and Supervisory Board members.

TIME INVESTMENT

The Management & Governance Master Class takes place over 3 consecutive days.

The program is designed to limit the amount of preparation time. Participants should plan for a total of 5 hours of preparation time.

“UNWRITTEN RULES AND UNCONSCIOUS MINDSETS IN THE BOARDROOM ARE OFTEN UNDERVALUED.”

A WORD FROM OUR ACADEMIC DIRECTOR

“With corporate governance, I mainly think of the three-way relationship between directors, Supervisory Board members and their stakeholders. Good governance should add long-term value to an organization. It’s not just about financial gains – it’s also about customer and employee satisfaction and the innovative capacity of the organization. Discussions on governance often revolve around laws and regulations, but it’s precisely the unwritten rules and unconscious mindsets in the boardroom that have a major impact on long-term value creation. In this master class, we walk you through all the key topics in management and governance. To give you a clear view of the world of Supervisory Boards.”
