Keynote Speaker About the Programme

Institute of Directors, India is organising a special evening workshop on "Boards That Lead' on Wednesday , 5th March 2014 at 1830hrs at Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi . It will be followed by a networking dinner.

Is your firm's board creating value--or destroying it ? Change is coming. Directors need a new road map--for when to lead, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way? There have been many attempts to understand better the ambiguous and changing world of the Boardroom and to determine what makes an ‘Effective’ Board. The recent global surveys suggest that ‘Board Performance Review’, is a powerful catalyst for increasing Board Effectiveness.

The evening session will have a special address on the above subject by our distinguished foreign expert Prof. Michael Useem, Professor of Management and Director of the Center for Leadership and Change Management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, USA. He is the author of The Leader’s Checklist; The Leadership Moment; Investor Capitalism; and The Go Point: When It’s Time to Decide. He is also co-author and co-editor of Learning from Catastrophes, and co-author of The India Way: How India’s Top Business Leaders Are Revolutionizing Managementand Boards That Lead. This will be followed by a panel discussion on 'Leadership & Boardroom Challenges'.

"Boards That Lead", authored by Ram Charan, Michael Useem, Dennis Carey, would tell us the inside story behind the successes, pitfalls of this new leadership model and would also explain how to:

(1) Define the central idea of the company
(2) Ensure that the right CEO is in place and potential successors are identified
(3) Recruit directors who add value,
(4) Root out board dysfunction
(5) Select a board leader who deftly bridges the divide between management and the board,
(6) Set a high bar on ethics and risk.

As the seats are limited, registrations would be accepted on first-come-first-serve basis. For nomination of more than three officers from the same organisation should be reserved well in advance.
