The Governance Evaluator 

Established in 2013, Governance Evaluator is Australia’s preeminent cloud-based, online tool and platform for governance evaluation and capability building.


    Dr. Nick Denton discusses his experience using the Governance Evaluator

    *The Governance Evaluator was the ideal tool for my Board to undertake its first self-evaluation. The tool is straightforward and easy to use. The automatically generated action plan has been really useful in focussing subsequent Board meetings on key governance issues and raising the Board’s awareness. The fact sheets are brief, but relevant, and allow the Board to get the information they need and to ask specific questions. All in all it has been a useful acquisition; providing the evaluation tool, action plan and the necessary governance resources to assist in Board upskilling.

    Accredited Independent Convener

    If you choose to discuss the results of the online evaluation with an independent consultant, Jodie Willmer is an expert convener who can lead you through this process for a powerful outcome. 

    In some sectors this is a legislated compulsory activity which must be undertaken regularly; with others it is best practice or recommended as a way of having an independent view of the governance capability of an organisation.  In the health sector it plays a part in their accreditation process.

    The external convenor will undertake the role that in subsequent years could be undertaken internally by the Chair.  This includes:

    • Board Evaluation
    • Individual Director Interviews
    • Board Development Session
