Board Alignment

Alignment for the innovative board.

This online assessment tool measures the alignment of your board members by quantifying critical success factors among 8 best-practice governance categories.

In 30 minutes, you can complete the confidential online survey, accessible via desktop computer or mobile device. Review your results through an interactive and easily navigable online dashboard.

A DDJ Myers representative will host a one-hour teleconference with the key stakeholders to review the highlights from the assessment, and provide a high-level summary report.

Assess performance, leverage strengths, identify gaps, and measure progress as a self-governing fiduciary body.

The BAA quantifies the board’s interaction and effectiveness, highlighting future value opportunities in the following categories:

  • Board Committees
  • Board Composition, Succession, Development
  • Board Information
  • Board Interaction
  • Board Oversight & Partnership of CEO
  • Board Performance
  • Fiduciary Responsibilities & Competencies
  • Strategy Development & Alignment

This is how it works:

The BAA’s input and output design is accessible, familiar, and repeatable for end users and beneficiaries. This allows boards to repeat the BAA on a regular schedule (i.e., annually) or during strategic times (i.e., before a merger) to reveal and demonstrate progress. The interactive dashboard intuitively displays the delta on the measured items (positively or negatively), allowing for stakeholders to quantify board alignment with action items.
