Case study:

Board Advisory

Our client was finding that their Board of Directors and Senior Management Team were spending a lot of time in meetings with minimal decisions being reached. Additionally, those decisions that were being made were being ‘undone’/retaken outside the meeting. Their goal was to speed up decision making whilst enabling better decisions to be made.

The Solution

We carried out a review of Board papers, agendas and minutes and then observed meetings and the flows of reporting within the organisation.

Templates for Board reporting and restructuring of agendas helped to ensure that information presented was useful and understood. A wider exercise of subsidiary boards and management committees was also conducted so that the purpose of each was better understood.

What we did

  • Streamlined the Board and Committee meeting process
  • Reduced the board pack size by 75%
  • Elevated Board discussions to focus on strategy rather than operations
  • Cut the Board report drafting time for report writers
  • Enabled more effective board level discussions to take place
  • Reallocated decision-making powers and made the right people accountable
  • Introduced middle management autonomy over certain areas of the business
  • Documented and communicated the agreed structures and allocations
  • Created more robust, quicker decision making throughout the organisation
