In Part 1 of our joint webinar series, Susan Stenson from Independent Audit and Emer Brogan from Board Intelligence explored why organisations are struggling to deliver high-quality board information, the impact it has on board performance, and what good looks like.
“Every time we work with a board, board information comes up as a topic – mostly in a negative way. We want this to change as it’s a fundamental element of board effectiveness.” ~ Susan Stenson, Independent Audit
"We found that only 28% of board directors believe their board pack supports a productive conversation, and 70% rate their board pack as ‘weak’ or ‘poor’. Since 2020, we’ve found that board packs are getting longer but they’re also becoming less effective.” ~ Emer Brogan, Board Intelligence
“40% of you told us you wanted to see more insight in your papers – papers that draw out the ‘so what?’, that think through the implications. 25% of you said you’d like shorter board packs, which is understandable when board packs often run to hundreds of pages.” ~ Emer Brogan, Board Intelligence
“If you have a strong agenda and CEO’s report , you’ll have a better board pack and a better board meeting.” ~ Susan Stenson, Independent Audit
Do you want an insightful, digestible, and actionable board pack that enables your board to perform at its best?
In this short video, Board Intelligence and Independent Audit shared practical tips and tricks to help your board have the conversations that matter and make smarter, faster decisions.
