An assessment of how a Board has performed and is performing in its governance of an organisation.

The Board performs three major roles in a company – it provides direction (i.e. sets the strategic direction of the company), it controls (i.e. monitors the management) and provides support and advice (advisory role). Board evaluation typically examines these roles of the Board and the entailing responsibilities, and assesses how effectively these are fulfilled by the Board.
