MU Board Evaluation

Effective corporate governance is high on every organisation’s agenda. Because the decisions your Board make determine the value of your company, the decisions you make when choosing and developing your Board also determine your success. Only a quality-assured and science-based approach can reliably secure success.

Mercuri Urval’s Board experts can provide an independent and objective evaluation of your Board. Continuous improvement is not just a subject for those working in your business – it is paramount for those who work on your business to improve it. Even the most experienced Executives must learn to manage with change, and thereby set an example for the rest of the organisation.

Simply describing what you have is not enough

You need to ensure the Board composition reflects the future business needs and Board effectiveness needs to be optimised.

Through our unique MU Leadership Assessment service our experts can assess how your existing Board Members or your potential Board Members will perform in the future, how effectively they will challenge their Executive, and how they will manage risk and secure a return on investment.

Our approach is always bespoke – precisely tailored. We address the issues you need addressing, for example:

  • What are the strengths and limitations of individual Board Members and of the Board as a whole?
  • What gaps and development needs can realistically be addressed?
  • What risks or opportunities are not being addressed?
  • How can your Board improve its performance?

Reliable evidence-based answers to questions like these ensure organisations take better advantage of current opportunities and plan their future more accurately. And whatever question we address with you, you can be assured of practical and actionable outcomes aligned with business needs.

The result of Board Evaluation

  • Clear and specific fact-based recommendations for each individual
  • Strategic insight: benchmarking the Board, understanding its strategic planning and risk management profile.
  • Board effectiveness development plan
