Effective Board Strategies for Good Corporate Governance in Public Enterprises

The scope of responsibilities of directors has expanded significantly, owing to current regulations. At Public Sectors Enterprises (PSEs) this expanded scope proves to be more onerous due to multiple stakeholders with often differing agendas, obligation to further national interests sometimes at the cost of profitability and greater public scrutiny. Given this background, the KPMG Governance Institute and Association of Independent Directors of India (AIDI) conducted a workshop, especially for directors of PSEs, to help them keep pace with this transformation, while working towards enhancing board effectiveness. The full-day programme included discussions on various topics such as the board’s role in strategy and governance, risk and compliance oversight, directors’ liabilities, fraud and vigilance, and cyber security.

Speakers for the programme included CMDs of public sector companies, ex-regulators and KPMG in India’s subject matter experts.
