ICSA: Evaluating Board Performance

Course Summary

It is now over 10 years since Sir Derek Higgs recommended in his report on corporate governance that boards, committees and directors should be evaluated on an annual basis. Learn how to evaluate your board and why it matters.

In this practical seminar, Simon Osborne will use his experience as a solicitor, chief executive and board director to discuss why boards of all organisations should be evaluated, explore the services offered by external board evaluation providers and the process followed by ICSA (the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators).  He will also discuss the benefits to be derived from such evaluations and some of the more common pitfalls and findings.
