> Defining the Board

What vision for which governance?

What is the company’s mission? Its strategy? In which context? Its type of governance?

As a preliminary step to a sound composition of your Board, this module allows you to define or clarify the type of governance most suited to the global environment of your company. It breaks down into the following steps:

1- Flash diagnosis of maturity

Built around one or two open discussions with the Chairman of the Board, the flash diagnosis is a summary document that formalises the type of governance and associated rules that are suitable for implementation in your company. The diagnosis also helps define truthfully the expectations of the Chairman and CEO regarding the contribution of the Board of Directors, in line with the company’s medium-term strategy, its background, the market in which it operates, and its different stakeholders.

2- Governance audit

This is a detailed diagnosis, built around open discussions with the Chairman, the analysis of corporate documentation (reference document, CSR report, annual report, etc) and the company’s website. It also covers a series of interviews with members of the Board and key executives of the company. Finally, it can include an analysis of the agenda and minutes of Board meetings over the previous 15 months.

This service can be supplemented by:

One-on-one  advice for the Chairman and CEO

This service is for the Chairman and CEO to benefit from a year-long one-on-one advisory service built around 4 work sessions with experts who are part of the Aliath professional network. The themes for discussion are chosen by the Chairman and CEO on the basis of the expertise that he deems most important to delve into: international development, corporate relations, image, communication, media, legal, HR, financing, external growth, etc. A customised action plan is delivered at the end of each meeting.
