Board Evaluation

 
 
Rising levels of board scrutiny from shareholders, regulators and the public have increased the need for Boards of Directors to demonstrate effective leadership, independence in the decision-making processes and the ability to exercise controls.
Board structure, composition and independence are all important aspects of the effective board. In addition an understanding of the decision-making processes, the dynamics between the individuals and the behaviors, contributions and commitment of the individuals are equally important.

 

The Corporate Governance Codes in many countries state that boards should undertake an evaluation of its own performance on a regular basis. An increasing number of regulators and investors also expect boards to do so.

By conducting a board evaluation the board will gain insight into which areas of their corporate governance could be improved.

They will be able to demonstrate to Stakeholders that they are working towards achieving the optimal level of corporate governance best practice on an ongoing basis.

We conduct board evaluations designed for boards who would like to know where they stand compared to their prescribed corporate governance code and best practice.
We offer three levels of board evaluations, a free self assessment tool, an external board evaluation and a board evaluation plus.
We have years of practical board experience serving on a range of different boards, conducting board evaluations and from consulting on corporate governance best practice.
Confidentiality is essential, all information in relation to the evaluation, except for the final report, will be returned, anonymised or destroyed once the evaluation has concluded.

The global wave of increased corporate governance expectations is pushing change.Good corporate governance can help companies improve their performance and gain access to capital. In the past few years, significant progress has been made in spreading this message across the Globe. This is done through determined efforts of various institutes, regulators, and other market participants that have been actively promoting corporate governance.

There is still a lot of work to do however. Despite all the efforts, substantial challenges remain. When speaking to global investors and regulators it is clear that good governance is no longer an option, but an imperative. Most investors are fully aware of the transformative properties of corporate governance in managing risk and creating value.
Improved governance will for any organisation have a range of positive effects, among others:

• Positive impact on reputation
• Increased ability to access finance
• Increased investor interest
• If listed, increased share price and value
• Positive internal reputational impact, reinforcing staff confidence in the company’s future.
• Substantial impact on organisational efficiency.
• Board-level procedural changes can contribute to organisational efficiency due to the improved decision making ability
• Corporate governance help companies improve crisis response.
• Substantial impact on sustainability.

GGG has an impressive group of very experienced Consultant Directors who have all been active Board Members of listed and unlisted companies for many years and who follow corporate governance best practice principles.

They offer to share their knowledge through a board evaluation plus service, where a Consultant Director will support a board in practical implementation of governance best practice throughout one full year.

Throughout the year the Consultant Director will share his/her extensive corporate governance best practice knowledge in the formal and informal settings of the board.

This way of practicing knowledge transfer at board level is unique to GGG and its Consultant Directors. We are able to offer this service in scale and on a global basis.

Best Practice Corporate Governance

 
 

Practical implementation of best practice corporate governance is an overlooked area of corporate governance consultancy. Anyone can read a Code of Corporate Governance but how will it be implemented in practice? Many boards find it challenging to implement efficient ways of actively following prescribed corporate governance codes.

At Global Governance Group we focus on developing practical tools that are easy to use and implement for boards.

We believe the board composition is at the heart of corporate governance effectiveness and offer boards a board composition model and skills and succession planning matrix to ease the process of determining the composition.

We also work with boards and executives around the risk oversight and how to make it a live part of the board agenda, discussions and decisions.
Making the risk oversight an effective tool in deciding on the overall risk appetite of the company, is key for board members when discussing the longer term viability of the company.

Initiating discussions of how to implement vision, mission and strategy into the board agenda in a practical way, is a good starting point to ensuring the right issues are being covered at board meetings.

We offer implementation of best practice corporate governance services as part of a board evaluation, as corporate governance training or as a free standing service.
