As investment professional you interact with a wide variety of stakeholders in various arena’s: within your organization, with your clients and possibly a wide variety of stakeholders in society. In this module we focus on the dynamics in the boardroom where investment decisions are taken. Boardroom dynamics comprises of the combined behavior of all individuals in a group, the way this behavior is perceived and how it is responded to. Being aware of your behavior and how it is perceived by others and understanding the dynamics involved in this interaction will help you to maximize your contribution to the board and increase your chances of achieving your goals. 

  • Management techniques that apply to present day organizations
  • The communication paradox, basic communication
  • Tools to assess investment processes and governance of customers

Learning objectives

  • Awareness of the existence of boardroom dynamics and the theoretical underpinning of boardroom dynamics; identifying biases as elements of behavioral finance, System 1 and System 2 thinking, how to improve you decision making process.
  • Lessons learned from investment dilemmas in de boardroom

This module is designed with the investment professional in mind. The subjects that will be addressed have a direct link with the day-to-day practice. The module starts with a primer on behavioral finance.

Psychological influences and biases affect investment decisions, without being consciously aware of it. Knowing these biases can help you dealing with them. Next, we address the transition to the platform economy and its consequences on ways of management. Old management techniques used in Industrial Organizations (IO) need to be revised to apply to organizations in the platform economy. Part of behavior is how you communicate with the people around you. We therefore take a closer look into (mis-)communication between expert and generalist, as well as manager and board member. The second day of this module starts with a deep dive into the investment processes and governance of your customers. How can you assess these elements such that this enables you to provide your customers with the best service? We finish this module with an overview of typical investment dilemmas of a wide range of stakeholders.
