Good governance requires performance of the board to be evaluated at least once a year
Are you and your fellow directors as effective as you should be?
Good governance requires that the performance of the board is evaluated at least once a year. The evaluation process is a constructive mechanism for improving board effectiveness, maximising strengths and tackling weaknesses.
The global economy is going through a difficult period. At times of such challenge, it is even more critical than normal that boards of directors can plan effectively and take tough and strategic decisions – this requires proper board procedures in place, with all directors fully understanding their role and having the special skills that directors need.
