Reporting to the Board

Practical Reporting to the Board of Directors

The Boards of regulated organisations are under increasing pressure to respond to difficult questions about how they provide oversight over business models, risk-taking, strategy and long-term business sustainability. A key challenge for a firm is to provide the Board with the Management Information needed to address key risks to the firm and ensure the decisions made are properly informed and transparent.

There are calls for increased transparency by regulated organisations to ensure the effectiveness of communication within the business which facilitates the cascading of information and instructions and this includes effective reporting. The Board report is an increasingly important aspect for organisations to provide a record of their approach to strategic decision making.

This course provides a safe environment in which to explore your strengths and development areas, and then practise new techniques, to bring about immediate improvement.
