Welcome to BoardWorks International
BoardWorks International assists governing boards, directors and the executive teams that support them, to achieve an advanced level of governance effectiveness.
Great governance does not happen by chance
The pressures on governing boards continue to increase. They are expected to exercise effective stewardship over organisations facing new and potentially disruptive changes to their operating environments. Modern technology gives greater access to information but threatens to drown boards in irrelevancy. The demands of stakeholders are increasingly loud and often in conflict. Legislators and regulators regularly deliver new prescriptions for ‘good governance' adding to the compliance pressures boards face.
Despite these and many other challenges, board work is still fundamentally a part-time activity. Recognising this we work with boards, board chairs and directors to help them get a better focus on the things that matter and find more effective ways to leverage their impact on organisational performance.
We also assist chief executives and their teams wanting to support better the work of their boards and achieve a more productive and mutually beneficial collaboration with them.
