The Integrated Report


This training  offers a practical understanding of the International <IR> Framework ‘s fundamental concepts, Guiding Principles and Content Elements. An integrated report connects the financial and non-financial and offers a holistic view of an organization’s strategy, performance, governance and prospects. Integrated reporting offers many benefits to an organization, including assisting in embedding integrated thinking. Integrated thinking is leading and managing an organization in a connected world where all six capitals affect each other.

For board directors and executives, the training offers  understanding of the concepts and requirements of the International <IR> Framework needed when approving their organization’s integrated report as well as the importance of integrated thinking. For preparers of reports it offers the practical guidance needed to start or improve the integrated reporting process and understanding the requirements to be met for the report to be in accordance with the International <IR> Framework.
