Board Research & Advisory

The Board Research & Advisory Department assists in board development, as well as that of the director and boardroom community, by addressing complex boardroom issues. Our engagement with the board at various levels over the last three decades, lends us the sensitivity of understanding various board matters and its burning & upcoming issues.

We engage in knowledge and resource development through research papers and surveys; board & directors’ performance evaluation to track and augment board effectiveness to achieve the vision of the organisation; develop strategic foresight capabilities for boards; contribute in catalysing the board’s climate governance initiative and commitment; extend arbitration, mediation and conciliation support; as well as enable value creation through integrated reporting.

The objective behind establishing the Board Research & Advisory wing is to enable best practices by way of research collaboration, benchmarking, framework development, evaluation etc., keeping with IOD’s mission of “Building Tomorrow’s Boards”.
