HOW WE WORK TOGETHER ON BOARD EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATIONS

We specialise in public companies, large national, international and global privately-owned firms, providing them with an evaluation that is tailored to closely align with the aims of the Chair and Board.

Back in 2009, the Walker Review acknowledged that in-house board evaluations may be useful for straightforward areas of boardroom functioning such as processes, procedures and when providing behavioural feedback. But their ability to address the more contentious aspects of board effectiveness relating to people, board leadership and styles of behaviour, could be limited.


WHEN WE WORK WITH CLIENTS ON THEIR BOARD EVALUATION IT’S NEVER A ‘BOX-TICKING’ EXERCISE.

In partnership with Britten Coyne Partners, we get under the skin of what’s really happening across all the Board’s workings and communications. We bring expert leadership insight and strategic risk governance to your bespoke external evaluation and board development programme.

  • Interview – all Board members, as well as, selected advisors who support the Board in its activities
  • Observe – the Board and its Committees in situ, at least once, preceded by a full review of board papers, key outputs and outcomes   
  • Survey – using an anonymous web-based tool to provide 1:1 360° feedback
  • Benchmark – against best board and director practice, guided by regulators, sector specialists and best-in-class organisations
  • Feedback – findings on the Board’s workings along with recommendations to each director on their strengths and where their contribution could be improved
  • Facilitate – an offsite meeting for key conversations on the Board’s and Directors’ development, based on a full report of our methodology, analysis and findings.
