The program will focus on the Commonsense Corporate Governance Principles that were issued in July 2016 by a group of prominent CEOs and investment managers, including Mary Barra of General Motors Company, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase, and Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway. The recommendations cover 8 categories:

  1. Board of Directors – Composition and Internal Governance
  2. Board of Directors’ Responsibilities 
  3. Shareholder Rights 
  4. Public Reporting 
  5. Board Leadership 
  6. Management Succession Planning 
  7. Compensation of Management 
  8. Asset Managers’ Role in Corporate Governance. 

In their release of these principles, the group stated, “We offer these principles, which can be found at governanceprinciples.org, in the hope that they will promote further conversation on corporate governance.”

The panel will include corporate directors and advisers to them. It will address the recommendations laid out in the principles from the perspective of how Boards are reacting to and dealing with them. The discussion will focus especially on the recommendations that may be more controversial than others. This program should be of particular interest to students of general business and of corporate and securities law.

Increasingly, governments turn to public-private partnerships to execute multi-million dollar missions and achieve public goals. Learn about this changing landscape that presents project managers in both the public and private sectors with new challenges ranging from standing up new models of organization and shared governance to performance metrics, accountability, and risk.

Having trouble getting your sponsor to focus on your project? Did their engagement end when the charter was signed? What!? They didn’t even read the charter? If you want to improve your sponsor relationship and get exactly what you need from them to keep you project moving forward, this presentation was built for you. Unfortunately, most sponsors don’t understand what is expected of them. Why would they? We haven’t told them, yet! We start with a sponsor assessment to help you evaluate the kind of sponsor you have for your project. That is key to understanding what comes next.

Then, we apply a sponsor management process and various techniques and tools to help you focus your sponsor on precisely what they need to know, help them understand what is expected of them throughout the project lifecycle, and how they can support you through the process of managing a
project.
