Interview-Based External Board Evaluation
Our independent board effectiveness review with interviews is our most thorough approach. Our interview-based board evaluations produce a report that is tailored to your Board. It’s about you. And face-to-face discussions mean we can bring out what really matters.
But it’s not just interviews. We review board papers and observe meetings to see how your Board works in practice – aspects of our work that many clients find particularly useful.
An interview-based board evaluation will give you maximum insight and result in practical suggestions for how your Board and committees can develop further.
Leaders in Board Effectiveness Review Questionnaires
You might not be ready for a full interview-based board effectiveness review. If that’s the case, our board effectiveness review questionnaire-based evaluation will meet your needs for an external review.
With this approach, we use our online evaluation tool, Thinking Board®. You conduct a self-assessment using our questionnaires and we analyse the results, write the report and discuss our findings with the Board directly.
This all adds up to a thorough external review that brings a lot more value than you might expect from a self-assessment. It makes it quick and easy, but it’s still rigorous.
Board Evaluation Software
If it’s the first time you’re conducting a board review and want to get started on the right track, or you’re not required to have an external board evaluation, then our online questionnaire self-assessment board evaluation tool, Thinking Board® is a good alternative.
Or perhaps you want a three-year follow-up approach. Many organisations are now looking for ways to follow up on their external Board review with a self-assessment progress check. This might be with a specific questionnaire looking at actions from the external board evaluation.
Thinking Board® is quick, easy to use, gives you an overview report and clearly highlights what is or is not working well.
