- PRODUCT OVERVIEW
Directors, especially of public companies, have a fiduciary duty to their company.

Some may simply be tired or too busy. Or perhaps they are disruptive to discussions. Or the board’s needs may have simply shifted. In any case, individual director evaluation is one of the most critical, and the most sensitive, of all board accountabilities. And, in today’s environment, it is expected and rewarded. Are your directors prepared for such accountability?
The Director Index is designed to help directors become more effective. Ours is the only objective, board driven, anonymous, confidential, and web-based evaluation solution to help individual directors optimize their performance.
The Board Index is a user friendly process that can be facilitated internally or by an outside consultant who works with the board to develop an action plan to respond to any issues raised. Read more about how TBI can complement your current evaluation process.

The report,which is a composite and provides no identifying information about individual respondents or the company, consists of:
It is as simple as that.
“The Board Index® was comprehensive and easy-to-use, and the results were very informative. It was a great way to collect and organize the thoughts of the directors on governance and compliance issues.”
