Assessments lead to good governance


Assessment is the most effective way to ensure your board members understand their duties and utilize effective good governance practices. Assessments move your board and board leaders to the next level of performance. And if you’re like most, that’s something you want to do!

Why assess?

Boards that have conducted a self-assessment are rated more effective by their chief executives than those that have not, and assessing the chief executive’s performance is tied to a legal obligation! But there are more reasons why you should assess performance on a regular basis.
