Director Tools

The AICD’s Director Tools deliver high-level practical guidance on a range of Australian boardroom topics.

Practical tools for directors.

These tools are designed to help you better understand and execute on your director duties and responsibilities, ensuring the best outcomes for your organisation.


These tools relate to how the board's governance practices permeate the organisation as a whole in the context of its regulatory compliance, its executive and management personnel, its strategy, its risk management and its performance.


These tools focus on individual director attributes, including an understanding of roles and duties, competence, leadership qualities and behaviours, and the responsibilities and style of the chair.



These tools cover the qualities and operation of the board as a combined team of directors, including use of committees, effectiveness of meetings, board dynamics, group competencies, and compliance systems relating to legal standards.


These tools examine the approach taken by the board concerning accountability to, and communication and engagement with, key stakeholders.
