Board evaluations

We design and deliver board evaluations and effectiveness reviews that result in improved leadership, greater clarity of roles and responsibilities, improved teamwork, greater accountability, more innovation and diversity of thinking, better decision-making, improved communication, and more efficient board operations.
Each assignment is tailored to suit our client’s needs, and could include:
  • interview or questionnaire-based reviews
  • a review of board papers, meeting observations and in-depth, candid discussions
  • the provision of a detailed insight into the workings of the board
  • the identification of strengths and weaknesses
  • the identification of the changes that will enable the board to achieve its full potential
  • a look to the future and identification of opportunities for improvement and development
  • a contribution to board succession planning

Why do we do it?

A board that truly adds value is not just a group of high performing individuals. A great board is a balanced team with complementary skill sets and a culture that allows them to work together to make the most effective decisions for an organisation. It is the full participation of every board member that contributes the most to the effectiveness of a board.

Who do we work with?

We do our very best work with privately-owned, PE-backed, or AIM-listed SMEs, autonomous subsidiaries of larger corporates, social enterprises, and charities across the North East of England.

Working with Andrew unlocks ideas in my mind; he helps me to get the best out of me. Our group sessions are always productive and it’s incredibly useful to know what others are doing with their own businesses at any one time. Each session without fail has acted as a catalyst to a number of spin off ideas for Cascade, with actions that complement our own ideas and direction perfectly.
