Fit for the Future

The job of the director is to help foster the growth and sustainability of the enterprise. Increasingly, that means being well versed in how external forces might affect the company. Technology innovations and a dynamic, global marketplace are creating new competitors that may be able to do what you do better and faster. Business models once considered rock solid are becoming obsolete, and a new generation of consumers is emerging that has different needs, demands, and expectations.

At this unique NACD event, directors and future-forecasters will come together to reveal how the convergence of trends on the horizon is impacting strategy and risk oversight. Now in an immersive workshop format, this 2-day course will

  • Understand the impactful macro trends your board needs to think about now
  • Unpack specifics on how your board can seize opportunities and mitigate risks brought about by those trends
  • Apply how your individual role on the board can best be leveraged to tackle the challenges of tomorrow  

Drawing insights and operational tools from The NACD Blue Ribbon Commission report Fit for Future: An Urgent Imperative for Board Leadership, Fit for the Future will begin with an overview of trends, then present five shifts the board should make in order to effectively navigate these trends, and will then spend a full day in role-specific breakouts discussing how these trends will manifest differently for the lead director or chair and the three key committees of audit, compensation, and nominating and governance.
