For an organisation to be continuously successful, there must be a clear, up-to-date understanding of its executive team’s strengths, both individually and as a collective.
These strengths need to be evaluated against the organisation’s evolving functional and commercial strategy. What, if any, absent skills should be identified.
Combining proven, data-driven methodology and decades of experience working with successful executive teams across multiple business sectors, our certified consultants help growing and complex organisations analyse and improve the dynamics and performance of their executive leadership teams – and consequently of their overall business.

Our board evaluations assess the Chair, NEDs and relevant members of the executive team against shareholder and stakeholder expectations and strategic business priorities. Using state-of-the-art data-driven measurement tools, as well as bespoke qualitative assessment, we are able to halve the time taken by a traditional board assessment.
Our evaluations take a holistic view of performance: considering individual competencies and group dynamics, reflecting on the balance struck between corporate governance and leadership, sector-specific expertise and a breadth of experience, assessing diversity metrics and temporal pertinence.
For VC and PE-backed companies, board and executive team performance and in particular relevance to growth-stage should be regularly evaluated to ensure continual alignment as immediate priorities rapidly evolve.
We work closely with founders, investors and executive teams and boards to conduct in-depth Board or Executive Evaluations for VC and PE-backed companies seeking sustained growth in line with their stage-specific business objectives.
