The Director Index

Managing the Most Sensitive of Board Accountabilities

Directors, especially of public companies, have a fiduciary duty to their company. It is critical that your directors are fully engaged, productive, relevant, and a positive influence on the board and the company. But not all directors fit that mold. Some may simply be tired or too busy. Or perhaps they are disruptive to discussions. Or the board’s needs may have simply shifted. In any case, individual director evaluation is one of the most critical, and the most sensitive, of all board accountabilities. And, in today’s environment, it is expected and rewarded. Are your directors prepared for such accountability? The Director Index is designed to help directors become more effective. Ours is the only objective, board-driven, anonymous, confidential, and web-based evaluation solution to help individual directors optimize their performance.
