Why Conduct a Board Appraisal?

A well-conducted board appraisal:

  • assists boards in assessing how well they have performed through benchmarking the performance against established best practice
  • allows for reflection on the role of the board, what its objectives are and how it has fulfilled those objectives
  • creates the opportunity for enhancement of board effectiveness
  • informs the recruitment and appointment of directors
  • provides a basis for identifying future development needs



Why use a Third Party to Facilitate?

  • The use of an independent third party to facilitate the board appraisal provides a non-threatening medium through which directors can provide candid and honest views
  • Independent facilitation lends objectivity
  • The involvement of an independent facilitator also enhances the credibility of the appraisal process for shareholders and other stakeholders
