Interview-Based External Board Evaluations
Our independent review with interviews is our most thorough approach. Our interview-based board evaluations produce a report that is tailored to your Board. It’s about you. And face-to-face discussions mean we can bring out what really matters.
But it’s not just interviews. We review board papers and observe meetings to see how your Board works in practice – aspects of our work that many clients find particularly useful.
An interview-based board evaluation will give you maximum insight and result in practical suggestions for how your Board and committees can develop further.
Questionnaire-Based External Board Evaluations
You might not be ready for a full interview-based board effectiveness review. If that’s the case, our independent questionnaire-based evaluation will meet your needs for an external review.
With this approach, we use our online evaluation tool, Thinking Board®. You conduct a self-assessment using our questionnaires and we analyse the results, write the report and discuss our findings with the Board directly.
This all adds up to a thorough external review that brings a lot more value than you might expect from a self-assessment. It makes it quick and easy, but it’s still rigorous.
Board Evaluation Software
If it’s the first time you’re conducting a board review and want to get started on the right track, or you’re not required to have an external board evaluation, then our online questionnaire self-assessment board evaluation tool, Thinking Board® is a good alternative.
Or perhaps you want a three-year follow-up approach. Many organisations are now looking for ways to follow up on their external Board review with a self-assessment progress check. This might be with a specific questionnaire looking at actions from the external board evaluation.
Thinking Board® is quick, easy to use, gives you an overview report and clearly highlights what is or is not working well.
