Board Effectiveness Reviews

Boards approach us to ask for a Board Governance Audit or Board Effectiveness Review covering all aspects of board performance. This is to shine a light on how effective the board is at leading the organisation, or in short, how well they are doing.

The reviews are conducted either remotely (useful for a range of reasons such as directors travelling, non-executives based abroad or during business disruption such as Covid-19) or face to face, we look at the board across 7 key areas of board activity, namely:

  • Leadership
  • Board dynamics
  • Strategic direction and clarity of purpose
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Board processes and controls
  • Sustainability and governance
  • Risk management and committees
