Management in meetings

When doing board reviews we typically ask about how non-executives know what’s going on deeper in the organisation, how they judge the bench strength, how they get a feel for culture and behaviours…and invariably we’re told it comes from exposure to executives and the rest of the management team in meetings.  But quite often we find that difficult to reconcile with what we see when observing board meetings.   For chairmen and non-executives, it’s a difficult balance to get right – time is always short and it’s important to factor in the management dynamics.  So here are some points on good practice – and things to avoid.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.

Yes, compliance matters.  But our work is about helping you make sure your organisation…is led effectively by a board that adds value…is kept under control through risk management and assurance frameworks that meet your needs…and is “doing the right thing”.
