Building on Purpose and Engagement
The pursuit of Sustainable Corporate Governance excellence by a board begins with defining the Corporate Purpose. A truly powerful Purpose Statement issued by any Board achieves the dual goal of clearly articulating the organisation’s long-term strategic goals as well as motivating and engaging all of its stakeholders.
The Board Practice’s Scope & Purpose Disciplines Framework for the formation of the Board’s Strategic Agenda will support the Chair of the Board and its Committees to review the outcomes of all exercises within a customised Corporate Governance framework for the purpose of building the appropriate Annual Agenda to support and promote the organisation’s Purpose.
Opinions on Board-level Governance
The Board Practice is regularly requested to draft opinions on critical issues facing boards, such as independence, relationships and structural issues. Our extensive experience in working with boards allows us to convey best-practice options, assisting Chairpersons and Corporate Secretaries to improve their effectiveness in the roles.
One of the best ways of establishing a benchmark of the work of the Board of Directors is by comparing itself to peer boards, both in terms of structural governance issues, as well as comparing the skills, experience and competencies of members of peer boards and committees. Structural benchmarks include diversity, size, number of meetings and a comparison of Terms of Reference of similar committees.
