Why Conduct a Board Appraisal?


A well-conducted board appraisal will achieve the following:

  • Benchmark board performance against established best practice
  • Reflect on the role of the board, its objectives and efficacy
  • Create the opportunity to enhance board effectiveness
  • Inform best practice for the recruitment and appointment of directors
  • Identify future development needs


Why use a Third Party to Facilitate?


Independent facilitation lends objectivity to a board appraisal. It provides a non-threatening medium through which directors can provide frank input, enhancing the credibility of the appraisal process.

Why use the IoDSA?


What the IoDSA brings to the table:

  • Almost 180 appraisals and seven years’ experience
  • Facilitation for directors, by directors
  • Broad experience in the private, public and non-profit sectors as well as other foreign entities
  • Ability to benchmark performance against an extensive database of similar organisations
  • Robust methodology based on King III
  • Identification of director development training and action plans to address the board appraisal findings



What We Offer


We facilitate appraisals of the board as a collective, board committees, the chairman of the board, the company secretary and/or the individual directors.

Organisations could decide to evaluate all of the above components in the same year, or to use a staggered approach with various configurations based on a cost/benefit analysis.

The IoDSA has specifically tailored offerings to suit various budgets and entity types (including listed and large private companies, public sector, SME’s, Trusts and NPO’s)
