Forum for Top Executive Management
Forum for Top Executive Management is a management project across the public sector in Denmark. It was established in 2003 by the Danish Ministry of Finance, Local Government Denmark and Danish Regions. The Danish public sector was then and is now continuously faced with a number of extensive reforms. This demands a constant focus on good Top Executive Management.
The point of departure for Forum for Top Executive Management was the preparation of the Code for Chief Executive Excellence in 2003 to 2005, which resulted in a book containing nine recommendations for Chief Executives. Since 2005 the Code has been the foundation for debates and activities in Forum for Top Executive Management (for more information on the Code for Chief Executive Excellence see the menu).
Forums ambition and purpose is to:
- Create a foundation for at constant debate on good Top Executive Management in Denmark.
- Stimulate formation of networks across the Top Executive group.
- Involve scientists, advisors, business executives, etc. in debates on good top management to challence and inspire Top Executives.
- Ensure that new Top Executives, who have not previously participated in the development of the Code for Chief Executive Excellence, become engaged in the group and take part in the ongoing debate.
The Top Executives get together for two yearly conferences. The conferences have changing themes with presentations from other Top Executives, scientists, advisors, business executives etc. The conferences give the Top Executives the opportunity to discuss different issues both formally and informally.
Forum for Top Executive Management has furthermore started seven networks across the Top Executive group. The networks each consist of a number of Top Executives with an interest in a specific topic. Currently, Forum facilitates a network on execution of organizational change.
