- PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The Norwegian Board Index is in Norwegian, partnered with Visindi, Norway. The exclusive objective of The Norwegian Board Index is to help your Norwegian board be the best it can be by assessing and enhancing its effectiveness.
The Norwegian Board Index helps directors and officers of public and private companies assess and enhance the overall effectiveness of their boards by focusing on the structure and composition, the role of the directors and the leadership of the board. The keys to risk management are knowledge, transparency and accountability. The Norwegian Board Index is the only evaluation tool available that can provide this value, because it is the only board-driven, anonymous, confidential, accredited and web-based evaluation tool to assess boards internally and against best practices.
The Norwegian Board Index allows directors and officers to assess the strengths of your Board and highlight areas for improvement. The independent, secure board evaluation is both quantitative and qualitative – essential to providing the substantive feedback your board needs.
Questions, analysis and best practices were developed in cooperation with CEO’s, directors and leading experts in corporate governance, finance, law, accounting, compensation, shareholder issues regulatory bodies and associations as well as survey research and behavioral experts in both Norway and the United States..
The Norwegian 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 Audit Committee Index® report identified an area of disparity and created and enabled discussion by the board members in an area that would have otherwise not been raised. We intend to do this again next year. It was really a wonderful tool for us”
