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 competencies that epitomise 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.
Who should attend?
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:
|Individuals supporting the role of Directors
|Boards of Directors
|Board Committee Members
|SME and Family Owned Businesses
How can I benchmark my progress?
The Certified Director (Cert.Dir.)
is a professional designation conferred by the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa (IoDSA). The designation is awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the training, online multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and written assessment.
The Chartered Director (SA) certification
programme is a four-phase assessment process aimed at recognising competent
directors against the competencies contained in the Director Competency
Our programmes can be customized to meet the needs of
your board of directors. These
