Chairs and boards play a critical role in the strategic oversight of their organisations.
From complex international mergers, the flotation of a high-profile business, to the commercialisation of a new technology, a cohesive board of talented and experienced directors is perhaps the greatest asset a Chief Executive and management team can have at their disposal to seize business opportunities and effectively manage risk.
Boards in Australia now face unprecedented challenges. Today’s fast-paced, rigorous and intensely competitive business environment places enormous demands on Directors. They must now navigate new challenges and opportunities such as digital disruption, cyber security, waves of innovation and the heightened pace of organisational and market transformation.
Odgers Berndtson Board Practice focuses on Chair, NED and CEO appointments. One of the strongest assets an organisation can possess is a diverse and innovative Board.
Selection for these positions leaves no margin for error, and identifying candidates with appropriate experience is only part of the picture. What they can add counts for more than what they have done. That’s why we assess prospective Board members not only on career history but on the qualities we know differentiate outstanding Board performers.
