What our Governance Evaluator users are saying

The Governance Evaluator was the ideal tool for my Board to undertake its first self-evaluation. The tool is straightforward and easy to use – ideal for busy medical practitioners.
The automatically generated action plan has been really useful in focussing subsequent Board meetings on key governance issues and raising the Board’s awareness. The fact sheets are brief, but relevant, and allow the Board to get the information they need and to ask specific questions. The action plan can then be updated to reflect what has been completed and next steps.

All in all it has been a useful acquisition; providing the evaluation tool, action plan and the necessary governance resources to assist in Board upskilling.
