The Boardroom Metrics Catalyst Podcast

The founders of Boardroom Metrics tap into their network of leaders, professionals, entrepreneurs, freelancers and friends for wide-ranging insights on business, corporate governance and strategy.

Podcast: Don’t be fooled by your Board Self-Assessment


Boardroom Metrics provides Corporate Governance and Strategy Consulting services to Public, Private and Not-for Profit Organizations in the United States and Canada.

Board self-assessments are an important corporate governance tool. However, Board self-assessments that over-rate the effectiveness of the Board of Directors can damage a Board’s ability to govern more effectively.

On this Podcast Jim Crocker urges Board of Directors to take a more objective, informed look at corporate governance and leave room to improve their Governance effectiveness.

Jim suggests that Boards should put more Board time and effort into learning how to assess corporate governance and that there is a real advantage in getting outside, objective help.
