MCD2 - Corporate Culture and the Role of The Board (NEW)

Course Description Corporate culture is widely acknowledged as a significant factor for upholding ethics, driving innovation, organisational performance and the engagement of customers, employees and other stakeholders. Despite its perceived importance, research shows that corporate culture is still an alarmingly low priority for boards.

Starting with exploring and understanding the culture of the board itself, the session presented by Professor Erik van de Loo of INSEAD will address how the board can initiate the process of self-evaluation in order to effectively function as a group and interact with the executives. A realistic self-awareness about their own way of operating is a precondition to becoming a credible role model for the aspired corporate culture. The specific national social cultural context such as Asia, Europe and Middle East will be discussed during the session as Professor van de Loo unpacks the frameworks and recommendations that will enable boards to effectively influence and set corporate culture in high priority.
