Value-creating board, board dynamics, and the future of corporate governance

The workshop will offer a stimulating and supportive setting to present research, test ideas, and engage in discussions on how participants’ work can be improved. The workshop will be interactive and active participation is expected – participants will be assigned to act as discussants for their peers in a series of small roundtable discussions.
