Board and Committee Self-Evaluation

Board and committee self-evaluation is now a standard requirement of most governance codes.  It’s also a characteristic of good governance.  We provide a range of services in this area, as described below.

 

CONSULTANCY

 

We facilitate Boards and Committees in conducting their internal self-evaluation:

We issue the questionnaires, analyse the responses, and meet with the Board and its Committees to review their answers and create an action plan for improvement.

We conduct external evaluations of Boards and Committees:

We undertake independent evaluations of Boards, in line with the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (section 4.6: An external evaluation proportionate to the size and requirements of the State body should be carried out at least every 3 years).

 

WORKSHOPS

 

We provide workshops for Board and committee members, including on:

  • Preparation for self-evaluation against the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (full-day workshop)
  • Preparation for self-evaluation against the Charities Code (full-day workshop)

These workshops use self-evaluation as a means of working through these Codes with Board and committee members and seeing how they can contribute to meeting organisational aims.
