Directors recognize the importance of a board performance assessment (evaluation) as a catalyst for deeper engagement and to ensure effective oversight of management and organizational risk. Great corporate governance complements great strategy. Identifying the best assessment process, however, has historically been a challenge. Governance is not a one-size-fits-all proposition.
This webinar will discuss board-assessment best practices, including how to structure a robust evaluation process and how to design assessments that meet the unique needs of your board and organization. We’ll provide a clearer understanding of how the process will help enhance board engagement, dynamics, board-management alignment and promote achievement of corporate goals. Finally, we’ll review potential pitfalls so assessments don’t become director disruptions.
