Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the Council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of Council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
- Collective problem solving that puts your issue on the agenda
- Benchmarking through regular surveys of Council members about relevant company practices
- Multifunctional insights generated by the wealth of perspectives gathered from 125+ Councils (covering more than 50 functions) that work together across geographies
- Virtual communities that extend learning opportunities through a variety of online forums and other resources
My participation in the council has paid itself off, in that what I accomplish in our discussions is far superior to the cumulative attendance at any number of conferences I may have attended in the past… With respect to the council, the rich and useful content provides for me the right set of solutions I can take back to my business (e.g. the Program Maturity Index). The learning I bring back from a council session is far more powerful than any benchmarkingactivity that I have done in the past, more relevant and on point with the issues myfirm faces. In many respects, the information I share within my firm is recognized as credible when I footnote the source as the Council.
