Our most versatile survey option, which also happen to be our most popular. It suits boards of small organisations and all larger organisations who want a lighter touch review
There are many requirements and many good reasons for organisations to conduct regular reviews to assess the performance, effectiveness and decision making of the board. Board reviews are of great benefit to an organisation as it helps ensure an effective board performance that aligns with the company strategy.
As board reviews become commonplace in most developed countries, specific requirements for board reviews will likely continue to be refined and expanded upon.
To ensure compliance and more importantly, to lift performance and effectiveness, “lite touch” board reviews are often used to fill the gaps left between the two or three yearly deeper dive external reviews.
More effective boards also mean more effective organisations. It is also more enjoyable to sit on and be part of a more effective board!
Our expert team has developed the Essentials Board Effectiveness Survey which is a shortened version of our Advanced Version. It is our most versatile survey option and happens to be our most popular as it can be used by any of the following entities:
The Essentials Version of our board survey includes all but two of the 16 factors of a board’s effectiveness and 34 of the 44 Advanced Board Effectiveness Survey. Taking roughly 15 minutes to complete with two open questions for written comments, this survey is the perfect cut down version of the full option.
We have seen a diverse range of organisations see real benefits from the Essentials Board Effectiveness Survey. Used by smaller organisations as well as a lite touch board review between deep-dives for larger organisations, this is a very affordable way for companies to keep on top of their board functioning, governance processes and how they can add more value as a board.
