Building Boardlevel Competencies for Top Management




Competencies comprise experience, knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and beliefs of an individual. To be accepted as ‘fit and proper’ within a Board, a director is expected to possess applicable industry, technical and behavioural competencies to fill particular gaps on the board. While the top management team may possess varying degree of competencies, the convention is to build them towards board level roles by grooming them in such specific or generic competencies that add value in the boardroom.

The programme is specially designed to build the competencies of top management staff for the boardroom.
