Abstract: This paper presents a framework for board self-evaluation based on a model grounded in the governance and team effectiveness literatures. It develops arguments for the creation of board effectiveness committees that are assigned responsibility for evaluating board construction, activities and outputs and the fit of these factors to environmental conditions. It presents the board effectiveness committee as an important element in the governance process.

Keywords: board of directors; BOD; corporate governance; business governance; accountability; reporting; performance measures; dynamics; teams; board self-evaluation; board effectiveness.
