Board Governance Review

Conducting a governance review is a great opportunity to reflect on your organization’s governance arrangements. It is a useful means of ensuring that the best practices or changes in the law are kept up-to-date and to identify any areas that require improvement. At Real Board Solutions we highly recommend period governance reviews as a means to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization’s governance.

A governance review can cover a number of areas including:

  • Meetings
  • Size of the board
  • Election methods
  • Recruiting approach
  • Committee structures

A typical governance review will include:

  • A review of documentation – code of conduct, Board policies, terms of reference
  • Interviews with Board members and other stakeholders
  • Discussion during a Board meeting
  • Assessment questionnaires with key stakeholders

Individual needs vary from organization to organization. Contact Real Board Solutions to discuss your governance review today.
