Board of directors peer evaluations are perhaps the more candid evaluation of director performance in that they provide in-depth information regarding fellow directors and inner-workings among them. They promote accountability among directors: the evaluation reveals a board's particular strengths, and areas where both directors and board as a whole lacks expertise or is performing short of expectations.
Assessing Skills Needed as your Organization Evolves
Many boards utilize the director peer assessment as both an evalution of individual contribution and a catalyst for discussing future board needs.
Anonymity and Collegiality
Board peer evaluation can be somewhat adversarial in nature. CBE's Peer Evaluation takes great care to encourage collegiality among board members. Directors are encouraged to speak frankly as they are afforded complete anonymity in taking the CBE Peer Evaluation survey.
As with all the CBE questionnaires, evaluations, and training tools, CBE can simply convert your organization's existing materials to a more flexible and efficient governance platform or work with your governance professionals to design a new questionnaire closely tailored to the unique aspects of your business.
