We supported a large social enterprise to transform its board so that it could provide crucial oversight of the organisation.
With a large service contract up for retendering and stakeholder dissatisfaction with governance arrangements, the organisation realised it needed to change quickly. That’s why it called on us to review its board and form recommendations to make it an efficient and effective body.
We used our board assessment framework to examine seven key areas including the internal dynamic of the board, its relationships with stakeholders and its accountability to the executive team.
Our recommendations, from establishing strategic partnerships to appointing a senior independent director and rethinking the frequency and duration of board meetings, were swiftly adopted.
The board has dramatically improved how it works with stakeholders and the leadership team. This has made the whole organisation function more smoothly and ensured large tenders get the scrutiny they need.
An effective board is an independent voice you can rely on. If you’d like to boost the impact your board is having on your business, get in touch to discuss how we can transform it.Contact us
