A Laser Focus on Your Board’s Effectiveness
Our team is not here to give your Board a pass/fail grade. Our goal is to help your Board keep learning about how it can work more effectively, efficiently and enjoyably.
We match fresh thinking and an innovative approach with a depth of expertise and services across committees, risk management and audits.
To assess your Board’s effectiveness, we offer three types of assessments: interview-based assessments, externally-facilitated questionnaires, and in-house board evaluations.
Interview Assessments Provide a Full Understanding of Your Board
Our independent specialists help you assess and ensure that your Board is working well. With interview assessments, we offer an end-to-end solution that includes paperwork review, in-depth discussions and meeting observation.
As part of our report, we collect our findings and debate them internally. Our report includes practical suggestions for improvement, which are written in plain English, and a flexible approach ensures that we address any identified specific focus areas.
Externally-Facilitated Questionnaires for Independent Insights
Using our Thinking Board® online software, questionnaires are completed by each board member as a self-assessment.
Our team of experts analyse the results of the questionnaires to identify themes and issues. The draft report is presented to the chairman for review, and then it is refined and presented to the Board for feedback and suggestions for the next steps.
Driving Board Effectiveness Through In-House Questionnaires
For companies that prefer to run the evaluation in-house, we offer self-assessment questionnaires that are effective in driving continuous improvement and offer real-time insights into your Board’s effectiveness.
With our in-house board evaluation questionnaires, you have full control over the questions that are included and how the data is reported.
Plus, we’re available to assist, offering training and support where needed.
