1 Overview CPE credit | Business Management & Organization

The ​pandemic-induced crisis and post-pandemic recovery ​offer boards ​an opportunity to reflect on actions taken to govern through ​a crisis and ​to contemplate future priorities that may disrupt long-standing thinking. What board priorities will emerge following the crisis? We’ll discuss:

  • Balancing agile scenario planning and decision-making between the short, medium, and long term.
  • A new definition of board oversight.
  • Questions board and committee members can ask to thrive in the wake of a crisis.
