• Conducted a comprehensive board
evaluation for a global branded goods
company involving confidential
interviews with all board members and
senior company executives who
regularly interfaced with the Board. This
work created such meaningful changes
that a senior executive later told us,
"This board has now become a
significant asset to our company -
particularly on strategic issues."
• Conducted an individual director
assessment for a privately-held
company in the energy sector. This
exercise was particularly useful in
reinforcing director expectations created
after a change of corporate and board
leadership two years earlier.
In 2011, Agenda magazine found that only 30% of directors considered their
annual board evaluations to be "highly effective". Our clients are in that 30%. If
you want to explore a new approach to make your board evaluation alot more
interesting and productive, you should get in touch with us.
We've seen alot of change in board evaluations in the past 2 years alone: Boards
are abandoning surveys in favor of comprehensive interviews designed to elicit
meaningful feedback from every board member.
We know the right questions to ask - and how to ask them. Our board
evaluation reports are not only meaningful - board members enjoy reading
them! Most important, our process yields an Action Plan that your board can use
for implementaton - and that's what makes all the difference in terms of impact.
But perhaps the greatest value we bring to any board evaluation is our
extensive boardroom experience - knowledge of how other boards have tackled
the same issues you might be wrestling with - what works and what doesn't.
Board and Director Evaluations
We've done individual director evaluations since 1996, when our first client introduced them
in North America. We do them much differently now - because we've learned what works and
what doesn't in this area from doing dozens of these over the past 15 years.
A peer review - where specific, constructive feedback is gathered from every member of the
board - is the only process we endorse. For obvious reasons, this should be done by an
experienced third party using a series of confidential interviews and probes.
If it's done right, your board will find this one of the most valuable exericses they've ever
undertaken. To get more information on doing it right CLICK HERE to contact us.
