What Constitutes Board Performance?
Board performance revolves around the effectiveness of leadership, informed decision-making, governance and the strategic direction provided by the company's board of directors. Good performance in the boardroom lays the foundation for the organization's growth, sustainability and how it handles challenges.
What is the Role of Board Performance Assessments?
Board performance assessments play a pivotal role in developing board efficiency. It aids in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats related to the board’s operations. Further, these assessments provide feedback on individual director performance and the dynamics of the board as a whole. This feedback cycle forms an integral part of the board performance improvement program, such as BOARD ADVANCE™, helping enhance the effectiveness of the board.
Why are KPIs for Board of Directors Important?
Just as organizations use KPIs to measure and track the performance of their operational, marketing and sales activities, developmental KPIs for board of directors hold vital importance. These KPIs assess the director-level performance and the effectiveness of their decisions. They might include metrics around leadership, coordination with staff, competence in the role, or others according to the specific nature and needs of the organization.
