Board and Director EvaluationsWe wrote the book on Board and Director Evaluations – and it’s coming out later this year…..

Board Evaluations

Boards are comprised of intelligent, accomplished businesspeople – so we build our board evaluations around structured conversations designed to leverage directors’ insights and perspectives.  We cover all eight parameters of board-building, but tailor our process to the board’s unique circumstances.  It’s the best board evaluation methodology we’ve found in 25 years of working in the boardroom. It helps make “good boards great” keep great boards vibrant.    Many boards view our evaluations as a team-building exercise–creating director alignment, resolving important issues and enabling the board to more fully realize it’s potential.

Director Evaluations

Our experience in director evaluations dates to 1996. We know what works and what doesn’t.  Scores are meaningless; laundry lists of write-in comments don’t achieve much, either.  Specific, constructive and balanced feedback is what makes a director evaluation process genuinely worthwhile – and that’s at the heart of our director evaluation methodology.

What Does it Cost?

Comprehensive Board Evaluation*
Conducted via Zoom (up to 10 directors) $45,000.00 US
Conducted in Person (up to 10 directors) $75,000.00 US (+ travel expenses)
Include 3-5 Top Executives $7,500.00 US
Review Board Materials (2 sets) $7,500.00 US

*We recommend that comprehensive board evaluations be conducted every 3 years; internal processes can be used in intervening years, if required.

Director Evaluations:
For One Director (or the Chair) $15,000.00 US
For Two Directors $25,000.00 US
For 3 or More $10,000.00 US per director
When added to a Board Evaluation* $5,000.00 US per director

*Cost and time synergies are achieved when director evaluations are incorporated into a board evaluation. However, this expands interview time by at least 30 minutes (to 90 mins total).
