pointing-finger-clipart-black-2814014

Are you serving on a Board, a Director, a Member of the Board’s Nomination Committee, the Company Secretary or the Chief Executive Officer or equivalent of your organisation? Perhaps an aspiring “new Director” seeking a Board seat?

Then this GRC Consulting Service is of interest to you personally and will benefit your Board.

The GRC Consulting Individual Director and or Board Service Offering is founded on the Institute of Director’s Director Competency Framework, which is unparalleled, Director focused, the global and truly internationally acceptable basis for mapping out Director Competencies, in a very useful and structured way, that enables Directors and or Boards to take concrete, focused, development and performance improvement actions.

We assist you directly with this Service in assessing:

Individual Directors – your competencies,

The Board – those of your fellow directors,

thereby enabling, for the Board, the establishment of the Board’s:

  1. collective current competencies position,
  2. their priority to your future strategy,
  3. establishing hurdle benchmarks, and in so doing,
  4. establishing the priority areas of strategic importance to the Board that require attention,
  5. and an action plan to address shortfalls/make material improvements,
  6. with the outcome of improving the Board’s capabilities and performance.

All founded on the Global Best Practice Competency Framework specifically for Directors from the Institute of Directors.

Simple to understand, Simple to implement and Simple to use.

We work with your Board to determine; what is most important to its future strategies, and Board decided competency hurdle rates.

The Board is then able to assess its respective competency strengths and weaknesses and in so doing articulate:

  • Where the Board is collectively strong.
  • Where the Board is collectively weak, and therefore develop those option plans that may include:
    • Director and or Board specific training and development initiatives.
    • Director new hires with specific competency needs outlined for recruitment.
    • Bringing specialist knowledge to the Board.
    • Ensuring greater Board support from the Executive.

GRC Consulting provides these services electronically over highly secure systems, directly to you and your fellow Board members. No-fuss, no delays, expert service, quickly, efficiently and in the most simple way.

Importantly, you end up with an Internationally grounded and globally accepted Director Competency platform for communication that is internationally compatible.

This service provides an approach to addressing your Director and Board competency, which is appropriately structured, through a repeatable process and directly oriented to your future strategy.

On the pressure front:

Governments worldwide are struggling to cope with the consequences of current market conditions, a history of high profile organisational failures and bailouts, combined with an uncertain future of further bankruptcy, liquidations and financial turmoil.

Directors and their Boards are again coming under an ever-increasing and intense spotlight.

Regulators, lawyers and enquiry teams are constantly considering the roles of the Boards, their Directors and their decisions. Importantly, Directors and Boards should be aware that these questions invariably lead to “Were they ineffective or culpable?” and or “What should they have done differently?” and or “have the Board of Directors failed to act in the investors’ best interests”.

Board and Directorial competence will continue to remain front and central and an important issue that should not be ignored.

On the performance front:

Of far greater concern to Boards and their Directors, particularly given current global trading and competitive positions, is performance.

Performance and “Cash is King” have taken on a new meaning in today’s volatile global economy. Survival is paramount, and being the best team to win the game is simply more than crucial. It is existential!

Whilst it is commonly expressed, it is relevant all the more today:

Directors must all be aware of, and comply with, legal, ethical, fiduciary and financial responsibilities.

On a practical level, this means understanding the organisation’s balance sheets, profit and loss accounts, sources and methods of funding, cash flow and other financial data. In particular, ideally, all directors should be financially literate. They can scrutinise the content of their organisation’s accounts to ensure accuracy and that they fairly represent the organisation and its business.

It also means knowing the legal responsibilities of directors. These include familiarity with company law, contract law, competition and consumer law, and the relevant industry and company codes of practice.

Still, the breadth of experience and the preparedness to develop it further are the critical requirements for any director and the Board.

Clearly, individual Directors will possess a greater degree of expertise in some areas than others.

It is the collective Board Team that counts and the effectiveness of that Board Team that is the focus.

The crucial points that GRC Consulting is highlighting:

  1. The individual Director and respective competency.
  2. The Board as a collective Team of Directors – to leverage the Board’s performance.

GRC consulting asks you – Are you as a Director ready? is your Board Team ready? Is your Team going to win?

Please click the “Purchase Now” button opposite to Purchase this Service Offering.

The GRC Consulting Board and Director Competency Assessment will deepen your understanding of your individual and your Board’s overall Team expertise, improve its performance and ability to lead and govern more effectively. It will:

  • Provide a wealth of valuable data and information in well-structured formats that are easy to grasp, visual and text.
  • Provide actional intelligence and action plans to strategically plan and improve individual board member skills and overall board performance to achieve strategic objectives.
  • Provide transparent feedback on Director and Board’s strengths, positions and overall effectiveness.
  • Provide easy identification of skill gaps for Directors and the Board and potentially your governance or nominating committee or corporate secretary.
  • Provide a list of experiences, competencies, and leadership attributes to seek when nominating board candidates, recommend individuals for board officer or committee positions, or inclusion into Director and or Board training and development initiatives.

Your Competency - Why it matters ...

Whether, given the current global turmoil, built on a history of high-profile organisational failures and bailouts, combined with an uncertain future of further bankruptcy, liquidations and financial turmoil, or as may be of far greater concern, performance and “cash is King” mean that survival is paramount. Boards and their Directors are under huge pressure to perform. Competition is fierce, and you have to be the best that you can be. Your Board needs to win; you need to perform the best that you can.

How to improve? How do you plan to improve those aspects if you are unable to identify and measure them properly? Where do you start, and what are you going to Consider? Measure? Being a successful, high performing Director is not the same skill set as an executive. Where to begin?

Our Service is designed to highlight your Director Competencies to have a properly structured foundation to assess and take action. Provided electronically over highly secure systems directly to you. No fuss, no delays, expert service, quickly, efficiently and in the most simple way.

The Director Competency Assessment will deepen your understanding of your individual expertise and provide you with a platform to improve your performance and ability to lead and govern more effectively.

We look at Evidence and Effectiveness, and in doing so, provide you with a basis to not only consider liability aspects (Evidence) but performance aspects (Effective) to enable a Plan to then take Action.

Section 2 and 3: Future Strategy and Hurdle Rate

Up to this Point, as explained on the Page “Board Reporting – Understanding the Differences …”, We have reflected the Board Reporting, which is the aggregated average of the respective participating Board Directors.

Under Section 2 and 3, the Reporting is impacted by leading the Board’s through our Service Process to drive and result in:

  • a re-prioritisation of the Framework Competencies as directly related to the Board’s Future Strategy, and
  • then subsequently to decide upon the respective Hurdle Rate for the Competencies under this re-prioritisation.

It does not make sense simply to regurgitate all prior reporting.

Consequently, we focus and additionally report only those Key Aspects of Interest in relation to Future Strategy and Hurdle Rate. This is done for both the Board and individual Directors.

This is noted on the following Pages with illustrative representations of the related Reports.

Please Note:

The following Reporting only pertains to the Board’s Reporting.

Each participating Director will receive his individual Director Reporting, as illustrated under the “Director Reporting” section.

Simple to understand, Simple to implement and Simple to use.
