Onboarding, Board Audit and Board Retreats – to support executives, new and seasoned members of executive and governing boards and their top teams in their personal development and delivery of value creation plans.

All tools and techniques that are part of our service offering are grounded in research, evidence-based yet tried, tested and practical. They allow for speedy execution and delivery and are designed to be an integral part of the value creation process / strategy implementation plan and not a generalist and disruptive stand-alone development exercise.

We are valued as trusted advisors by our clients as well as CEOs, chairmen and investors who want to make a mark and genuinely develop and enable the boards and executives they work with.

Creating the basis for value creation

What makes an organisation successful? What undermines its success? An organisation’s ability to create and enhance the value it aspires to offer depends on the extent to which its executive and senior manager teams operate in ways that are efficient, focussed and sustainable. This is not just a question of the expertise, experience and personalities of individuals that make up executive and senior management teams. Outstanding work and value creation in boards, senior and middle management does not simply materialise out of thin air come or in a package delivered by a human resource consultancy. It is the result of a carefully designed development process that factors in the key criteria for success at board and management level.

Tailored solutions

Supervisory boards and investors have recognised the need to develop boards, senior and middle management and are looking for new ways to develop individuals and teams.

The best basis for this is to provide a set of tools and resources that are relevant to all levels of leadership and management. However, the diverse consulting and coaching market has so far failed to offer anything that is tailored to the specific requirements of executive, governing and supervisory boards and their executives and leadership teams.

Better Boards services bridges this gap. They are:

  • Tailored to the needs of executives and governing boards and senior management and the way in which boards and senior management interact with non-executive directors, investors, shareholders and other stakeholders.
  • Offer objectivity and comprehensive analysis since they can integrate larger sample sizes in resource-saving online surveys.
  • Are customised, since the surveys are not processed in a standardised manner, but are developed with the client and back up by one-to-one interviews
  • Are target-driven and action-oriented. Concrete and relevant action plans are delivered.


Backed by research and proven in practice
The approach used by Better Boards is based on a combination of extensive practical experience and integrates the latest findings from international research. The founding partners have years of experience as investors, CEOs, consultants and executive coaches working with executive and governing bodies in Germany and abroad.

For over 10 years, the partners have been drawing on latest research on which they carry out a detailed analysis in order to ensure success in a real business context. Better Boards benefits from close working relationships with reputable global research institutions including the London Business School, Judge Business School in Cambridge and WHU (Otto Beisheim School of Management) and a distinguished advisory board.

The result is a highly effective, successful and practical-based approach that incorporates the latest research findings and has undergone a rigorous peer review process in the United States, Great Britain and Germany: We call this combination “evidence-based”.
