In our most recent post, we were encouraging boards, like the organizations they oversee, to reevaluate some of the standard practices that have always informed their business (like members no longer coming into branches). Historically, that would have been a crazy suggestion. Following suit, what are the unmentionable topics boards should discuss? We believe board composition and succession is one of them.
The Board Alignment Assessment provides an objective framework for boards to have grounded conversations about board best practices. The idea is not to score 100% on everything but to assess alignment on the variables that influence and impact board performance.
