Presenting the first in a series of TIHR papers on Board Evaluation and Development…
During the past 10 years and under the impetus of the financial crisis, the case for increased board accountability and scrutiny has been made widely by stakeholders, regulators and the public. Debates on governance have led to the creation of new checks and balances, process rules and structure, but despite improvements, many boards are still found wanting. Independent research confirms the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations’ claims that this is because insufficient attention has been paid to the behavioural challenges in boardrooms such as evolving roles, effective leadership, group dynamics, enhancing diversity, managing complex relationships and developing a positive culture.
The Tavistock Institute’s Board Evaluation & Development Team are pleased to post the first in a series of short papers that come out of public meetings with chairs, board members, evaluators and reviewers on board performance. This paper is the result of such a meeting held on 4th October 2011 on Leading Boards.
