Research Report Board Performance Review for Small & Mid-Sized Quoted Companies
Together with Downing LLP we commissioned Henley Business School to conduct comprehensive quantitative and qualitative research to understand the lay of the land for small and mid-caps in this area. This research is presented in this report. It identifies how most smaller companies’ boards can be characterised as either inactive, reactive or proactive with regards to board performance review and it provides a valuable snapshot as to how growth companies differ from larger companies in this area.
Companies will benefit from reviewing where they sit on this spectrum and assessing if there are improved practices they can learn from other companies at a similar stage of development to them.
To accompany this report, we have produced a separate practical guide to board performance reviews. It takes the findings of this research and distils six recommendations for companies to follow as good practice for such reviews.
