One of the top reasons companies fail is because of the quality of their board. As most companies are run and owned by the same people, confusion is rampant.

You need to ask yourself, "Am I wearing my shareholder hat, my management hat or my Director hat?" - all of those roles come with a different specification and level of responsibility.

In some companies, it is a sad fact that individuals sometimes get promoted beyond their competence levels. If that promotion ends up in the boardroom, this may cause huge problems for the company and subsequently, the rest of the board members.

Equally, it is a fact that companies outgrow their incumbent members. In other words, a perfectly competent board of yesteryears is now finding business growth beyond their capabilities. Whilst playing fantasy football can be a fun distraction, it is not a game to play when restructuring the board of directors.

Please note there is no formal assessment or exam for this course.


What the workshop will cover:

  • Analysing the strengths and weaknesses in the board and how to plan your actions
  • Change the people or change the people
  • The new future proof board and what it looks like

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
