Boardman Competence Network

Boardman Competence Network

Boardman is an attractive think tank and competence network that plays a key role in developing and raising the level of expertise in ownership, board work and management (the OBM chain), as well as networking among decision-makers.

Boardman’s mission is to support owners, board members and management teams in their mutual collaboration and decision-making processes.

We create and share new knowledge about relevant and important topics to our members, who represent growth entrepreneurs, owners, board members and executives.

Cornerstones of our activities

Partners and network members form a committed community that is aligned with Boardman’s mission. The members contribute their expertise to member and development forums to develop and share new knowledge.

Boardman organizes events and training, supports research, produces publications and creates assessment tools to support the decision-making of business owners, boards and executives.

The Boardman Competence Network comprises member and development forums at which knowledge is developed and shared to support the decision-making of owners, boards and executives.
