Content & Schedule

During a two-day program, the participants get to know interactively how the Boardroom functions. Here, the focus is on the change in responsibility with regard to the four 'Landscapes' and hence on the change in requirements in both administrative knowledge and the role and skills of the director.

The program includes the most relevant administrative topics, in a combination of short lectures, case studies, interactive discussion, reflection and dialogue with experienced directors. In addition, the participants will have access to preparatory reading material and reference work.
