Successful implementation of strategy

The dynamics between executive and non-executive directors (internal Supervisory Board) play a large role in the successful implementation of the strategy. The focus here should be on the organization's long-term continuity. As an executive, the higher you are in the organization, the more you will encounter this dynamic. In this position, you will need to be well-informed about corporate governance. In the Leadership & Governance module, you will learn what constitutes good, efficient and responsible policies, as well as accountability to stakeholders and shareholders for those policies. This will help you fulfill your position more effectively.
