We help boards make sure that the governance structures are doing what they are supposed to be doing.
This might mean looking at board effectiveness or board committee evaluation. Or assessing the effectiveness of
risk governance, ethics, and internal or external audit.
We help boards understand how their approach…
…to giving strategic leadership helps drive the achievement of its objectives
…to evaluating risks helps get the risk-reward balance right and avoid problems
…to oversight helps make sure the governance framework supports sound control
…to building a picture of performance supports strategic success and managing the risks
…to fostering the right culture provides a solid basis for driving strategy forward
…to communicating with shareholders
and other stakeholders can increase confidence in the organisation’s direction, leadership and management.
We also help the audit committee or management look at…
…the effectiveness of internal audit in supporting sound control
…the effectiveness of external audit in giving assurance over financial reporting.
Whether we’re looking at just one part of the governance framework or the whole approach, we look at it in the context of the business’s strategy and overall approach to governance.
We find practical solutions that meet best practice in board performance and assurance, and set them out in short, straightforward reports.
We can help you think through different approaches to board review including use of our web-based board evaluation service Thinking Board as part of an externally-facilitated board evaluation or purely as a self-assessment tool.
