Board and Director Effectiveness Evaluation

Know where your Board and directors stand with the ICDM Board and Director Effectiveness Evaluation (BDEE) tool. We use a face-to-face confidential interview format to get in-depth insights, verified feedback and actionable comments that will lead to productive discussion and engagement.

Assess your Board according to the following key parameters:

  1. Board Composition
  2. Board Information/Pre-Reading Materials
  3. Board Agendas and Meetings
  4. Board Dynamics
  5. Board/Management Relationship
  6. Board Leadership
  7. Board Committees and Subsidiary Boards
  8. Board Processes


Individual Directors Evaluation (IDE) is aimed at appraising the performance of individual directors while enhancing positive engagement among them to ensure an effective and agile Board.

Directors Gap Analysis (DGA) is a self-assessed competency survey to manage director development. It can also be used to evaluate progress of each director over a period of time.
