Development & Skills Matrix

It is critical that a board not only understands its roles and responsibilities for governance, but also that it is comprised of directors who collectively have the skills, knowledge and experience to effectively understand the business they are governing. The Development & Skills Matrix is used to assess the individual director and overall board for both governance and sector-specific skills in a measured way. This is essential for individual director, and whole board, development plans, effective succession planning and director recruitment.

The Development & Skills Matrix evaluates directors in the following areas:

  • Professional Director Skills
  • Sector Specific Skills
  • Culture
  • Contribution
  • Governance Development

Our director development & skills matrix diagnostic can support boards to achieve the key characteristics of effective governance, ensuring a consistent and high functioning level of the right skills, experience, and behaviours across all directors.

When paired with Governance Evaluator’s Board Evaluation, boards are empowered to build their capabilities as a whole board and as individual directors.

Our flexible solutions configure to your board’s requirements, from self-guided governance assessment to full-service expert led packages
