Board Effectiveness

Is your executive board as prepared as it needs to be, not just for today but for the next decade? More and more organizations are realizing that the only way to deal with the increasing pace of change is to have an effective board of directors that is flexible, creative, and open-minded to match.

This is a shift: Rather than focusing on avoiding risk, today’s best boards must see uncertainty as an inevitable part of both innovation and governance. However, an understanding that the ability to manage risk well can present its own opportunities and is another key marker of board effectiveness.

Pivotal’ Approach To Board Effectiveness With our Executive Assessment and Development Practice, we have created bespoke solutions to help give some of the most prestigious and complex organizations in the world a more effective board of directors. Our goal is to determine whether boards have the skill sets needed for the ever-evolving corporate landscape and, if they don’t, help them get there.

Sometimes that means working with existing candidates; sometimes it means recruiting new ones. Our work also applies to CEO succession planning, one of the most critical responsibilities a board has. Whatever the situation, we work with you to develop an outcome where your enterprise has the effective board it needs. We have been working closely with companies to improve board effectiveness for decades, helping them find the very best leaders for their most critical needs.

Board Director Hiring

Boards today face more complex challenges than ever. They must balance many issues, from shareholder activism to cyber security, and compliance issues to diversity and innovation.
