First and foremost, board effectiveness in business today involves so much more than conducting reviews than simply filing a report.
Consequently, at The OPG we understand that board effectiveness calls for expertise across business psychology, performance management and corporate governance. This is why as a result we provide 360 analysis of board composition. Moreover, our expert team also implements director and organisational performance measures that are designed to enhance your leadership team and your wider workforce accordingly. Ramsey Hall & The OPG also provide leadership development as well as executive recruitment and NED search.
Not only do The OPG help organisations meet the requirements of corporate governance, whether for listed companies, AIM listed businesses, unlisted organisations or charities. We go far beyond that, actually reviewing current best practice models against, at present, the Davies Review as well as the IOD guidelines.
Moreover, we give our clients a thorough understanding, not only of their organisation’s compliance, but also of their risk profile, development goals, and ultimately, succession planning needs.
In other words, our multidisciplinary approach, to a complex performance area, quite simply takes our board effectiveness work to a different level. Board effectiveness is complimented by our Executive and NED search practices. See our blog post on Board Effectiveness.
