We are all clear that we want to create effective and high-performing boards. A whole industry has developed around board evaluations. Some are cynical about this. Academics and consultants propose different models and solutions. In my view, there is no right or wrong. Different approaches work in a different context. We find that the most crucial …

There is a rising tide of investors, communities and talent caring about ESG issues. No longer is it surprising to see ESG feature more prominently on the agendas in boardrooms. It is no longer acceptable to invest in a business for profits alone when those with poor practices can have such a profoundly negative impact on the world around us. Welco…

Studies provide clear evidence that boards with members of diverse backgrounds govern organisations that have better business results than those with less diverse leaders but it does not stop there. We see similar patterns when it comes to innovation. The Hampton Alexander report in the UK highlights that we have come a long way in integrating wome…
 
The relationship between the Chair and the CEO is widely considered to be one of the most significant, if not the most significant, in any organisation. If the relationship is working well, it is a powerful alliance that can energise and uplift a whole organisation. But if the relationship is broken, the effects are felt throughout the organisation…
 
I can not recall a single board evaluation nor a single event I attended in Pre-Covid times where the need for challenge in the boardroom was not stressed. At the same time, I know from hundreds of interviews with members of boards how hard it really is to challenge constructively. Welcome to the Better Boards podcast series. In this episode, Dr Sa…
 
Recent board evaluations have laid bare how much Covid-19 has accelerated the digitisation and transformation of organisations. Independent of the industry and independent of the country boards realise that they need different skills and behavioural traits in order realise their strategic ambitions. I thought that it is a good time to hear from two…

Many of our clients say early on in our discussions that they do have an aligned board. However, when we walk into the boardroom with high expectations of a relatively smooth board evaluation process, we usually find - usually during the one-to-one interviews we conduct - that there are deep and significant gaps in consensus. With the pace of chang…
 
A wide range of perspectives in the boardroom is critical to effective corporate governance. Multiple views on the possible outcomes of any action makes for a decision-making process that is more likely to take into account the various risks, consequences and implications of possible actions. Progress has been made in recent years and for example g…
 
Around the world, governments are struggling to address the immediate and long-term impacts of the pandemic. Governments are supporting key industries at an unprecedented level. Questions emerge about the role government representatives and politicians should play when an organisation receives public funds. We thought that it is a good time to cont…
 
“The board should establish the company’s purpose, values and strategy, and satisfy itself that these and its culture are aligned. All directors must act with integrity, lead by example and promote the desired culture.” Corporate Governance Codes around the globe are clear and yet the root cause of many corporate failures points to a toxic culture.…
 
Social studies provide clear evidence that more diverse boards are more effective. Organisations that are governed by more diverse boards are less likely to get embroiled in scandals and are financially more successful. The business case is very clear and yet diversity is all but the start. What counts is the integration of people in the boardroom …
 
Many directors at the beginning of their directorial career often worry that they will not make the impact they want or that they expect to make.

Welcome to the Better Boards podcast serie…
 
Building an inclusive and diverse workplace that draws on the talents of all of the people, is vital to any Economy.

In the light of the new Parker Review report in…
 
Bankers around the globe are getting ready for a wave of corporate takeovers. Covid-19 has changed the position of many private and family-owned businesses and they are forced to exit earlier than expected. Others had to put plans on hold to see how Covid pans out.
