The course will:
An essential requirement for an effective board is for the directors to provide the strategic direction for the company as a whole is their ability to deal effectively with dilemmas facing the board. This workshop explores how a strategy is how a orients the company towards its market and its competitors. Flawed strategic thinking at board level can create massive value destruction and even threaten a company’s survival.
Risk management is also a key role of all boards. Companies take risks to generate returns. The board is responsible for ensuring that all business risks are identified, evaluated, and suitably managed. In a world of increasing complexity and uncertainty, directors must manage risk more assiduously than ever before. Enterprise risk management (ERM) is a structured, consistent, and continuous process across the entire company (usually large companies) for identifying, assessing, responding to, and reporting on opportunities and threats that affect the achievement of the company’s’ objectives.
The amount of risk varies not only with the type of business or its market circumstances, but also with the business’s position in its life cycle. Young, high-growth businesses will be more vulnerable than mature, stable businesses. Directors must decide, acting on management’s advice, how much risk the company can accept. This risk appetite may vary over time and will be influenced by the company’s financial condition and market position.
What will be covered?
The workshop is highly interactive and includes presentations, tools, guides, case studies and simulations.
