Our Board Effectiveness solutions are fully customised and structured to be scalable from effective self-assessment to comprehensive external objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the Board, Committees and its Members.
Purposeful Board Renewal
Most Boards still follow a replacement strategy; our approach and software app allow Boards to aspire to, and plan for, a long-term future state related to strategic imperatives and short-term departures.
Strategic CEO Succession
Our philosophy is that CEO succession should start on the day of appointment and therefore should be based on proper process, with both an internal- and external view.
CEO & EXCO Evaluation
The full Board is accountable for the effectiveness of the CEO and the EXCO, therefore the whole Board should be involved in a structured way, especially regarding the non-financial aspects of the roles.
Board Advisory Services
Our extensive experience and insights allow us to assist Boards in all aspects of the challenges they are facing.
