|Director Development Overview|
The focus of our Director Development offerings is to contribute to the development of better
directors, and ultimately, better boards.
The enhanced leadership and direction in turn delivered by these well-equipped boards will,
we believe, yield better business.
How do we define "better directors”?
The IoDSA Director Competency Framework TM (DCF) contains 20 competences that epitomize the
competent director. All our offerings
are aligned to the DCF and we are therefore continuously striving to deliver
relevant interventions – training, events, mentoring, assessment and
certification - that equip directors with the necessary knowledge and insights
required to fulfil their duties and to appreciate the importance of good governance.
What does the IoDSA offer?
Director Development and Events delivers a host of
interventions aimed at supporting the continual learning and development of
aspiring and experienced directors.

If you’re are in a leadership role or involved in leading a business, then you need to know how to do business. We believe that governance is simply good business practice and needs to be effused throughout the business. Our programmes are developed for different target audiences:
The Board Simulation Programme is aimed at offering experienced directors an opportunity to benchmark their ability in the board room whilst interacting with others.
The Chartered Director (SA) certification programme is a four phase assessment process aimed at recognising competent directors against the competences contained in the Director Competency FrameworkTM.
Directors’ Circles provide
the opportunity for less experienced directors to engage with seasoned
directors and experts in different areas of governance.
Our programmes can be customized to meet the needs of your board of directors. These programmes can be offered at your premises or your choice of venue. Complete the Request for Proposal form detailing your needs and we will contact you to propose the best offering for your requirements.
We are proud of our affiliation with other educational partners. These include:
