Our online service Thinking Board will give you much more insight from a questionnaire-based approach than you might expect.  It doesn’t just look at process but looks at all the main influences on risk governance and risk management effectiveness.

There are questionnaires covering strategic risk management by the board, risk oversight by the committees (including specific questionnaires for both bank and insurance risk committees) and risk management effectiveness to support the committee’s annual review.

It helps you cover a lot of stakeholders efficiently and makes analysis of responses from different parts of the business easy.

  • The content is intresting and extensive

    …provoking thinking around the drivers of effectiveness – and clearly drawing on Independent Audit’s experience.

  • The question structure is different

    …engaging the respondent much more, helping them think through the possible issues and giving better insight.

  • The reports are very effective

    …being clear and easy to adapt into a committee report – and comparing responses from different categories gives better analysis.

  • It helps you diagnose a problem

    …drilling down through scores and comments to see where the root cause lies and to spot themes.

  • It's easy to use and time saving

    …having a clean and simple screen for respondents and easy-to-use controls for administrators.

  • The administrator is in control

    …easily changing the questions, wording and reports without having to revert to us

And for complex groups with subsidiary boards and audit committees, our Group Thinking Board gives you a consistent picture across the business. And to “slice and dice” to help you see where the problems might lie. The analysis and reporting saves you lots of time and helps you turn data into insight.
