Board Surveys Partner

Board surveys board benchmarking global partner

Better Boards. Better Organisations.

Board Benchmarking’s aspiration is to help lift the performance and effectiveness of thousands of boards across the globe, because we believe Better Boards means Better Organisations.

Board Benchmarking was established by Nicholas Barnett in 2005 to help lift governance across the world by developing and providing world class governance surveys to clients. Fifteen years later we have helped over 275 boards understand how they are benchmarked overall and in the 20 most important areas for a board’s effectiveness. In the words of our clients, our surveys are “surprisingly accurate” and “highlight hot spots very quickly and easily”.

During early 2020 we refined our benchmarked Board Effectiveness Survey following an independent validation process by Deakin University to establish psychometrically defensible dimensions of board functioning that can be used to reliably evaluate board performance. The process also included a detailed review of contemporary board literature which also added some additional dimensions. The new dimensions and refined survey items are reflected in our current survey and benchmarked report.

We have also helped hundreds of directors understand how others rate them compared with their own ratings and how the ratings of them compare with the ratings of other directors. The areas where they add the greatest value to their board and the suggestions others have for them are also included. As directors continue to improve their effectiveness that also helps continuously improve their effectiveness of their board and the functioning of their organisation.
