Questionnaire-Based External Board Evaluations
A rigorous external review
Our independently facilitated questionnaire-based board evaluation will meet your need for an insightful board review.
Use our online evaluation tool Thinking Board® to conduct a self-assessment. We analyse the results, write the report and discuss our views and development suggestions directly with the Board.
This all adds up to an external review that’s quick and easy but still precise and rigorous.
Ask the right questions
Drawing on our years of experience as a market leader, our pre-prepared questionnaires are designed to ask the right questions in the right way, saving you time in the process.
The unique structure of the questions encourages additional comments, allowing respondents to explain what’s underlying their scores and helping you to understand the root of any issues and to identify what needs to be improved.
Reports with actionable insights
We pull together our observations from the scores, identified issues and comments. Then use our experience to summarise findings and draw out themes.
From there we draft a report written in plain English that unpacks key observations and gives practical suggestions. An easy-to-follow report will be provided to you by our team as we report back to the Board.
You are left with actionable insights into the areas where your Board and committees are doing well and where they could be doing better.
As an independent evaluator, we compare the board evaluation findings with the practices of comparable organisations and corporate governance standards.
We’re in an ideal position to offer an outside perspective, providing an important check on the Board’s view of itself.
Our evaluations yield concrete recommendations that the Chairman can use as a road map to refine the way the Board works and elevate its performance.
