This review, carried out for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), was to assess the quality of independent board evaluation and identify ways in which it might be improved. The Chartered Governance Institute found there was scope for broader adoption of good practice and greater transparency on the part of both board reviewers and companies using their services. It concluded that these objectives should be pursued through voluntary initiatives in the first instance, with appropriate encouragement from BEIS and the FRC.
