Board Effectiveness

Working with Boards to elevate their effectiveness through independent review and targeted support


Whether public, private, government, or not-for-profit, stakeholder expectations of organizational governance continue to increase. At the same time, the range and complexity of the issues crossing the boardroom table continues to grow.

In short, the demands on Boards have never been greater: anticipating future challenges and opportunities driven by external factors such as AI, attitudes around DE&I, and climate change; while remaining laser-focused on current organizational issues. 

It’s a balance which requires the Board not only to have the collective skills and experience to objectively assess complex challenges and consider the needs of all stakeholders, but to also be fully aligned around a vision for the organization with a sense of shared responsibility and purpose.

As a result, the best Boards are now striving to continuously improve their performance in ways which drive stakeholder value. To support this, our Human Capital Consulting team offers Boards independent reviews and workshops designed to support them on this journey which we believe is iterative involving the following interventions:

  • Board Annual Survey

  • Board Effectiveness Review

  • Board Development Plan

  • Board Performance Workshops

  • Board Annual Survey

  • 3 Year Board Effectiveness Review

Our reviews identify clear roles and responsibilities for Board members while uncovering individual development opportunities, while the workshops help Boards understand best practice, apply techniques and principles by working together on exercises, and to commit to changes in the boardroom.

Our workshops encompass:

  • Purposeful culture

  • Future-proofing strategy

  • Effective decision-making

  • Dynamic governance

  • Stakeholder influencing

  • Active succession
