Management board

When using BoardResearch it is essential to involve the management board in the self-evaluation of the supervisory board. You can find more information below on what is deemed important when including the views from the management board.

The management board can provide the supervisory board with valuable insights into the functioning of the supervisory board, by sharing their insights about the supervisory board. Members of the management board can anonymously contribute to the self-evaluation of the supervisory board by filling out a questionnaire about the functioning of the supervisory board. The results are presented in the Executive Report in a standardised and anonymous way. The management board report contains a comparison of the perception of the management board about the functioning of the supervisory board with the self-perception of the supervisory board. This report will only be provided to members of the management board. Management board members may decide for themselves which insights they would like to share with the supervisory board.

How to incorporate the management board's input in the supervisory board's self-evaluation?

The management board report is only provided to members of the management board. It is advisable for the chairperson of the supervisory board to discuss with the CEO what insights the management board would like to share. We also advice to invite management board members to the first half of the self-evaluation meeting, to give management board members the opportunity to share their insights. For the second half of the self-evaluation meeting it is advisable to only have supervisory board members attend. It is then possible to create an overall shared point of view regarding the functioning of the supervisory board in its current form and to reflect on the functioning of individual supervisory board members.
