Culture: Rocket Fuel for Value Creation
Culture can foster corporate excellence or result in headline-grabbing catastrophes. It is a source of competitive advantage—“rocket fuel” that helps to drive strategy and long-term value. As a result, the recently released NACD Blue Ribbon Commission Report on Culture as a Corporate Asset focuses on the importance of directors playing a greater role in the oversight of organizational culture.
Make your plans today to hear from NACD National President and CEO Peter Gleason; Director Linda Welty, who joined the board of Massey Energy after one of the largest mine explosions in U.S. history; and Director of MoneyGram Peggy Vaughan, who served on the Global Management Board that led the successful integration of PwC Consulting after IBM's acquisition, as well as a cross-IBM project to improve growth. They will address questions such as:
What are the signs that culture could be leading to disaster?
What mechanisms for measuring company culture are most effective?
Are there particular points in time when board oversight of company culture is especially critical (e.g., after a merger or acquisition, after a senior leadership change, during periods of rapid growth)?
How can culture impact the way customers perceive a company?
