Essential board member training on strategy governance

Only 22% of board members say they understand their firm’s strategy. A key reason for this is many board members lack expertise on strategy or understanding of the new rules of strategy in today's world. Without a deep understanding of strategy and the role that the board needs to play in governing strategy, board members often fail to add real value in terms of strategy. 

Strategy Governance for Boards enables you to play a meaningful, advisory role in the governance of your firm’s corporate strategy within the context of an increasingly complex business landscape.
