Building a Better Board Series: Board Evaluations, Alignment, and Retreats – Part 3

Boards of every size participate in evaluations of board practices and individual director performance every year. But if you’re new to the board evaluation process or just looking to update your current best practices, there are a number of questions to consider: What are our desired objectives? Do we involve a third-party evaluation service? Should we plan a board retreat to help plan for the future?

Board evaluations add value to every stakeholder in an organization including directors, executives, and shareholders because they strengthen the way organizations operate and ultimately govern. In part 3 of the BoardBookit and Governance Partners Group webinar series, Building a Better Board, we answer all of your questions and more!
