Inside the toolkit

Advanced Board Governance strategies

Today’s members and stakeholders are increasingly holding companies responsible for a company’s performance, which has lead to a shift in ensuring companies have truly strategic governance and an ethical strategy in place to guide core organisational activities.

Attributes of a Conscious Board Member

These eight attributes will add immense value to the Board, and all Board members have the ability to use these attributes, if they choose.

What is a Board Charter

Board Charters are documents that set out the job description and overall role of the board — from the composition, purpose, role, and responsibilities to job descriptions for committees — reminding Board members that they are part of a group with authority over, and liability for, the organization.

Board Evaluation Processes

Board Induction is essential to ensuring that new Board members become productive contributors to the Board as quickly as possible.

Board Subcommittees

The most common Board committees are the Finance and Audit committee (sometimes called the Finance committee), the Board and CEO Appraisal committee (sometimes called the Governance committee, or the Succession Planning committee, or the Remuneration committee), and the Compliance committee (sometimes called the internal audit committee, or the audit and risk committee).

Board Succession Planning and Skills Analysis

One of the key roles of any Board is to continually ensure that it has the right set of skills, talents and attributes represented in its Board members. There is an increasing demand for highly qualified, dedicated, conscious and aware directors who truly add value to the organization. 

What are Board Policies?

Board policies are designed to help CEO's, Boards, and staff leaders advance their organizations, make better collective decisions, and guide individual actions and behaviors.
