Governance Evaluation

A comprehensive board evaluation and organisational assessment that uncovers businesses strengths and weaknesses and benchmarks against leading practices.

The Govn365 governance evaluation is a comprehensive board evaluation and organisational assessment giving businesses oversight and the power to move forward with clarity.

Board evaluation and organisational assessment

The Govn365 governance evaluation not only assesses your board, but the entire organisation too. It separates business operations into ten critical areas and evaluates how well your board and organisation are performing within each one through a series of multi-choice questions. A Govn365 consultant will support your team through this process ensuring everyone is heard, group think is avoided and answers are unbiased. The governance evaluation process in itself has proven to align teams and improve communication leading to faster decision making and increased board efficiency.


The importance of governance evaluations

The 2021 Govn365 White Paper: Governance in the Dark, highlights the importance of governance evaluations and how 'good governance' can positively impact business performance. Reasons for improving the standard of governance include directory liability and reputation, organisational performance, improved strategy and risk management, increased valuation and benefits for stakeholder relationships.

Governance Evaluation Process

The governance evaluation is completed within a two hour session and ideally involves 3-6 people from the board and executive team. An experienced Govn365 consultant facilitates this session, either virtually or face-to-face, taking you through the ten critical areas of business and a series of multi-choice questions. The evaluation is comprehensive and the fastest way to accurately identify your board and businesses strengths and weaknesses.
