Case study:

Overcoming toxic board relationships

To understand why the Board was struggling to reach agreement on business strategy and more importantly focus on what was preventing management from implementing it. 

The Starting Toll

Our work involved;

·       Reviewing the composition of the Board to assess the inhibitors from an operational, strategic, and cultural perspective;

·       Identifying that lack of agreement was due to certain decisions of Board members, which were not aligned with the Company’s aims and culture;

·       Providing a step-by-step pathway for our client which covered items such as succession plan, legal and regulatory duties, communication, maintaining existing staff as well as guidance from start to finish.

Achievement Highlights

From working with us our client was able to:

·       Pinpoint the root cause of their problems;

·       Be provided with legal and regulatory guidance to ensure no breaches occurred;

·       Make better business decisions;

·       Embody the culture the organisation wanted (rather than had to) through Board members and senior management; and

·       Progress with its strategy.

“Beyond Governance has brought a fresh way of thinking and lots of new design ideas to our annual report process.”

We deliver pragmatic solutions that are unique to your organisation.

 

We act as an extension of your team rather than an external adviser.

What we did

We assessed the existing culture within the organisation and observed the dynamics of the Boardroom and Senior management meetings. This enabled us to identify varying approaches being applied to process, which further enabled us to overcome disjointed relationships.
