Board Evaluation & Governance Reviews
Independent Audit are specialists in corporate governance.
We have exceptional credentials in board review. We also help boards assess the effectiveness of any aspect of their governance framework and risk oversight.
We give them assurance that risk governance is sound. We help audit committees assess external audit and internal audit effectiveness. We help boards obtain comfort that corporate behaviour is what they intend it to be.
So what makes Independent Audit different? We’re not just about board evaluation. We also provide a single source of expertise in many of the different aspects of governance and board responsibility across risk, assurance and behaviour. That’s one thing. But you’ll also get practical recommendations in succinct reports designed for board-level use and written in our distinct style. You’ll get senior people who operate at board level. And the real issues at the heart of board effectiveness are considered – in a sensitive, client-specific way.
It’s all based around our core thinking. Governance works well if it helps the business perform. It’s not about compliance. It’s about the way people behave, talk, report, challenge. About how management helps the Board do its job. And how governance helps management in providing strategic focus, showing leadership and taking risk in a controlled way.
So an Independent Audit board evaluation isn’t about giving a score. And our governance and audit reviews aren’t about checklists and process. We’re about providing insight and recommendations so you have a solid basis for continuous improvement.
We’ll share with you our experience of board governance and assurance across organisations of all shapes and sizes ranging from the largest global companies to small not-for-profits. And if you’re not looking for a full external review we can support your self-assessment through our web-based tool Thinking Board.
