In the past few years, the idea of board evaluations has become increasingly accepted as a tool for boards to monitor their own performance. An effective evaluation carried out by an independent third party can help boards to enhance their performance and collective decision making. The intention of board evaluations is that the strengths of the board are recognized and built upon and weaknesses are addressed. The underlying focus of board evaluations carried out by Hawkamah is on how well the board works as a team.
Hawkamah has partnered with Better Boards to provide board evaluation services to regional boards. Better Boards is an independent consultancy specialised in developing executive and governing boards and executives that work with boards and aspire to a board position.
Better Boards is credited for its research into effective boards. All Better Boards services – Onboarding, Board Audit and Board Retreats – are evidence-based, peer-reviewed and innovative. The Better Boards approach is proven, efficient, yet rigorous. It allows for business continuity without disruption providing insights as well as practical and actionable solutions for the individual board member and the collective board and management team.
