Assess Your Governance Practices Against Best Practices

NACD Governance Reviews provide in-depth analysis of an organization’s governance structure, processes, and drivers. Our faculty reviews your current practices and shares opportunities for improvement or refinement based on NACD’s recommended best practices.


NACD's faculty comprises more than 40 sitting directors and subject-matter experts. Your faculty member will be matched to your organization according to his or her boardroom and industry experience. View a sampling of companies and organizations our faculty are currently serving, or have served in the past.


A governance review engagement begins with a planning call between the NACD team and designated client representatives to set expectations and goals. Then, depending on the scope of the engagement and giving consideration to its desired outcomes, NACD's faculty may inventory your board's structure, processes, documents, communications, and practices. When this inventory is complete, NACD's faculty will assess the results of the inventory against NACD's researched and recommended best practices. The findings from this assessment can be compiled into a detailed report and presented to the full board during an interactive discussion, if requested.
