Committee Assessments

Evaluate and Strengthen Your Committees with CBE Committee Assessments

Committee Composition is Integral to a Functioning Board

Because much of a board's work is done at the committee level, boards need to have the right committees, and committees need to have the right composition. CBE has conducted assessments of nearly every type of committee – from audit to compensation and education to nuclear. CBE's customizable Committee Assessment process enables boards to identify where their committees are most effective, and opportunities for developing optimally effective governance.

And while Committee Assessments are often conducted simultaneously with the board assessment, a separate, detailed report is prepared for each committee.
