UNDERSTANDING BOARD DECISION – MAKING PROCESS
18 – 19 February, 2021
Decisions, decisions — they’re part of governance, leadership, and life. No matter how comfortable we are (or aren’t) in making them or how prepared we are (or aren’t) to make them wisely, we are faced with countless opportunities to make decisions especially as board members. In fact, effective decision – making is a key indicator of board effectiveness. This program will explore the process of decision – making in the unique setting of the boardroom – how directors make decisions individually and then collectively as a group of diverse individuals sitting on the same company board. By seeking to understand how we make those decisions and the drivers behind them, the aim is to improve the decision – making process – by balancing diversity and inclusivity; expanding the boundaries of rationality; and managing the cognitive and affective elements – for the good of the company. Aside from directors, C – Suite will also benefit from understanding how board decisions are made for their interaction and communication with the board. The program will be conducted via a mix of interactive lectures, case studies and group discussions. 09:30 – 12:30 hrs on Zoom. Program Fee: RM 1,500

CORRUPTION RISK MANAGEMENT
23 – 24 February, 2021
The National Anti – Corruption Plan (NACP), launched by our then Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamed on 29th January 2019, seeks to instill clear and strong principles of transparency, accountability, and integrity as well as good governance to combat corruption. The Plan is to create a corruption – free ecosystem for future generations and to move the country into developed nation status. Both the public and private sectors should implement clear strategies to achieve this goal. A key strategy would include embedding a Corruption Risk Management (CRM) system within the Enterprise Risk Management system of the organization. With the introduction of the Corporate Liability Provision under S17A of the MACC Act since 1 June 2020, implementing a robust CRM system becomes even more critical for organisations since it serves as “adequate procedure” and a defence against liability arising from corrupt practices. This program seeks to help participants understand the importance of implementing a corruption risk management system. Participants will also have the opportunity to delve into the nuts and bolts of creating a Corruption Risk Management system, identifying corruption risks areas as well as the controls required to mitigate, eradicate or minimise both the impact and probabilities of the risks occurring. Participants will experience a guided methodology which is practical and immediately usable as they complete the 1 – day program. 09:30 – 12:30 hrs on Zoom. Program Fee: RM 750
