How broad is your board?

Executive search and section consultancy GatenbySanderson has produced an interesting publication – How broad is your board?

The publication highlights the issues and provides insight and advice as to how team profile and composition impacts on a board’s ability to engage across the full range of its responsibilities. Although focused on non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs), Healthcare Governance Review believes that much of the guidance could be applicable in a wide range of organisations.

According to GatenbySanderson, “The right team of non-executive directors is a formidable asset to the organisation at large, and to its sponsor department. However, boards are often recognised for being under-representative across gender, ethnic mix, disability and sector background. So what do we need to consider when making board appointments? How do we ensure that we are attracting, selecting and working with the best people for the role? And how, critically, do we decide where the balance should be between strong, strategic capability and ensuring a broad enough range of experience and perspective?
