All boards benefit from periodically taking a hard look at themselves. Assess whether they work in the optimal way and with the right subjects. Is there a need for new skills, perhaps a replacement. In this way, you can get more value out of the work the board provides when they have to contribute to ensuring your survival, increased profitability and growth.
When a board is to be value-creating, it must add something different to what the other management adds. The board has to work with other topics, and it has to do it in a different way. It requires regular evaluation and adjustment. This is important because business cycles change and the organization’s life cycle and needs change. Board work is significantly different for a company in existential crisis and for a company in strong positive development.
What can it be used for?
There is a great need to professionalize boards. There are far too many boards that act unprofessionally and without adding any value whatsoever. Do you have the optimal board right now and for the challenges in coming years? Do you appoint the board team based on your current needs. Do you have the optimal competences, do you replace board members on an ongoing basis. Are the board meetings about solutions and about the future. It is important to have plenty of foresight, to get the most value out of a professional board.
