About the MBT Board
The MBT Board exists to provide sustained, engaged and distributed leadership to the MBT program and its community. The board grows in accountability each year and comprises up to 20 active members that collectively deliver strategic outcomes for the MBT stakeholder community.
The board meets on a monthly basis and is fully empowered to formulate and execute strategies that drive the program and its community towards realising their visions. The board conducts annual strategic planning and uses the resultant strategic framework to inform the selection of initiatives that are in turn driven by members to deliver upon key strategic objectives.
The strategies aim to support the programs effective delivery and to supplement this focus with that of building a vibrant community and growth in the awareness of the MBT Brand.
The board’s strategic framework is reassessed and refreshed annually. The strategic planning typically occurs in July-August of each year and the current strategic areas of focus are:
Sustainable Leadership - To ensure the program and community continues to deliver consistent and renewable value without relying on any individual.
Clear Identity, Recognisable Brand - To establish absolute clarity of our offering and ensure it is widely recognised, differentiated and valued.
Networked Community - To achieve a mutual professional and personal benefit for all members.
Transformational Program - To develop a clearly differentiated offering to technology leaders which empowers them with a quality of education that promotes social responsibility and enriches all spheres of their lives.
Self Determination - To generate and leverage the requisite resources needed to deliver on our value proposition and effectively meet our commitments to our stakeholders
