Board Assessment

The Key to a Better Board: Team Dynamics

Our consultants help owners, investors, and boards assess their composition, group dynamics,
their information architecture, and their ability to focus on substantive issues.

Board Composition

The diverse backgrounds and experience of Alder Koten consultants can help plan, assess, and implement effective diversity initiatives that drive business results. The right composition is critical to achieving the delicate balance required for critical, productive, and insightful discussions.

Group Dynamics

The quality of interactions between board members is crucial to board success. The ability to engage in productive cognitive conflict is linked to high-quality team dynamics.  Alder Koten consultants use transformation competency and cultural profile models to assess, evaluate and promote productive board dynamics.

Corporate Governance

We help boards and organizations go beyond the regulatory framework or “corporate governance on the books” by focusing on actual company practices and enhancing the value that boards add through changing behavior in the boardroom. Particular attention is placed on the company culture that can foster or hinder transparency and best practices.
