Thank you for taking interest in this programme. Being a board director was once an easy role to play in the twilight of one’s career.
Modern directorships are not to be taken lightly, but they often are. It is a job without a description, a journey without an orientation. These days it is a position undergoing intense scrutiny and change with great demands attached.
At the end of the day, members of the board of directors carry the final responsibility for the success or failure of the organisation.
The board of directors is a critical instrument of governance and plays a key role in economic development in both the public and private sectors.
Research shows that the board effectiveness is dependent on a variety of factors: the orientation of new board members, procedures for board training and development, board room discussion and participation, formal board member appraisal, remuneration of board members and timeliness in making decisions.
Ideally, a board should comprise good ethical leaders who are mentally aggressive, value time, are intrinsically motivated and open to regular evaluation as a tool for improvement.
The Effective Director’s Programme (TED) is a path-breaking programme that covers the work of the board and seeks to add value to the contribution of individual directors. The programme is designed to address these and other contemporary paramount issues in boards.
