Board evaluation ensures a culture of good governance and compliance underpins a firm’s activity. It enables directors to think ahead and decide how things need to evolve to meet new challenges.
Our approach mixes qualitative with questionnaire-based assessment. It focuses attention on areas where improvement in practice and behaviour would be beneficial.
We have worked successfully with clients from different jurisdictions and helped them grasp difficult cultural and behavioural issues inhibiting Board effectiveness. There is always careful consultation with the Senior Independent Director to focus an exercise as well as feedback to get agreement on what the Board will act upon to improve itself.
