Board and Director Evaluations: Innovations for 21st Century Governance Committees
Board Advisor LLC, Oct 15, 2020
A board evaluation is the most powerful tool in the governance arsenal - and one that is rarely used to its full potential. Today, sophisticated directors are increasingly demanding more from their board and director evaluations, eschewing their tired old board surveys for new approaches that effectively tap into directors' insights and good thinking - and produce meaningful outcomes that can take a board from good to great and keep a great board vibrant.The book begins by describing typical outcomes other boards have achieved from taking this approach and points out that the most important element in a meaningful board evaluation is a boardroom champion - someone in a board leadership position who's genuinely committed to excellence, to making his/her board the best it can be. From there, the key features of a genuinely worthwhile board evaluation are outlined in depth- from the creation of the interview protocols, through to the development of the Action Plan. Board 2.0, an innovative exercise that engages directors and executives in designing the optimal board to govern the company in the future - is also discussed in detail; any board can benefit from learning about this exciting new approach and incorporating it as a component of a comprehensive board evaluation process. The final chapters focus on individual director evaluation - designing a meaningful peer review process that delivers constructive and actionable feedback; sophisticated directors deserve no less. It also introduces the New Director 360, an innovative practice that may be a useful final phase of any director orientation program.
