An annual checkup means a healthier and
more effective board.
Whether you are a Fortune 100 multinational,
a private company or a non-profit organization, if you have a Board of
Directors you should be reaping the benefits of board and 360 assessments.
We provide a simplified self-evaluation survey process that saves you
time. It’s convenient, confidential, customizable and cost effective.
years of experience with board self-evaluations means you can be confident
and assured that the process will go smoothly, even if the unexpected
occurs. Once the questionnaire has been finalized, the rest is up to us.
Your reports arrive in the mail, as you specify. Even our invoice is
painless with no surprises in the form of extra charges for phone calls,
consultations or even (domestic) shipping.
Confidentiality: All responses from individual participants, whether
on surveys or in interviews, are kept strictly confidential and anonymous.
Once completed, surveys are returned directly to us and not back to the
company or to an intermediary. This means there are no issues because
someone on the board or management knows the identities of particular
respondents and their responses -- and it also means participants can be
completely confident that their responses are anonymous. As experienced
governance experts in complex litigation, we are very sensitive to the
liability issues involved with board advisory work and board evaluation
processes. We are well versed in facilitating board evaluation processes
that address these concerns. We offer paper based solutions to meet
heightened concerns and we keep our clients’ names and information
confidential as well. For that reason, you will not see a list of client
names on our website or in the quotes about our services on this page. If
you have any questions on these issues and the advantages of strict
confidentiality to your board practices, please call Eleanor Bloxham at
614-571-7020 to discuss.
Customizable Questions: Use our questionnaire, your questionnaire,
or a combination. Our questionnaire is a standard set of common
questions that, based on our extensive experience, we think should be
considered. However, each company/organization is unique and therefore,
we encourage you to customize the questionnaire to fit your situation,
as needed. The breadth of the survey is up to you and can
include surveys for the full board, each committee and individual director
Accuracy: After compilation of the results, the tallies, including
comments, are subjected to three separate 100% audits to guarantee
Our reports reflect the responses in several useful formats. A detail
section shows each question, a graphical, "instant-read" picture of the
responses (to quickly spot areas for review) and all of the comments for
that question. In addition, a summary of the numerical responses allows
for a quick scan of the results. (For our repeat clients, we provide a
comparison to the previous year's responses -- numerical, graphical and
comments -- for easy comparison. Our clients have found this to be
Affordability: Pricing is determined by the
total number of questions and the number of
participants plus a small base
fee. The base fee covers 3 additional copies of each report, all expenses, and
domestic shipping. You will know the full and total price before the project begins.
We provide access to the expertise of governance authorities who have been
pioneers in innovating board evaluation processes stretching back long
before they were mandated and who have continued to help and assist firms
of all sizes over the last decade to choose an approach which fits their
board. Our extensive experience comes from our work with companies of
every size (startup to Fortune 100), both for-profit and tax-exempt,
public and private, and governments, including global and non-U.S. based.
