Our methodology


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
