MU Board Evaluation
Effective corporate governance is high on every organisation’s agenda. Because the decisions your Board make determine the value of your company, the decisions you make when choosing and developing your Board also determine your success. Only a quality-assured and science-based approach can reliably secure success.
You need to ensure the Board composition reflects the future business needs and Board effectiveness needs to be optimised.
Through our unique MU Leadership Assessment service our experts can assess how your existing Board Members or your potential Board Members will perform in the future, how effectively they will challenge their Executive, and how they will manage risk and secure a return on investment.
Our approach is always bespoke – precisely tailored. We address the issues you need addressing, for example:
What are the strengths and limitations of individual Board Members and of the Board as a whole?
What gaps and development needs can realistically be addressed?
What risks or opportunities are not being addressed?
How can your Board improve its performance?
Reliable evidence-based answers to questions like these ensure organisations take better advantage of current opportunities and plan their future more accurately. And whatever question we address with you, you can be assured of practical and actionable outcomes aligned with business needs.
The result of Board Evaluation

In the words of our clients
Assessment – a client centric force
From being sceptical towards external assistance on establishing management teams and profiling individual managers, I am today of the opinion that the Mercuri Urval processes and the dedicated support from Mercuri Urval have been one of the important success criteria in both merging Vestas Asia and China, but especially in establishing MHI Vestas Offshore Wind A/S."
– Jens Tommerup, CEO
Reliable recognition of the right leaders
To help us make the right choice for key management positions, Mercuri Urval carried out assessments for our executives to get a precise picture of the potential within our people and of outside candidates as well. Their recommendations were very well founded and extremely helpful in unlocking that potential and making the right decisions. Mercuri Urval looked after us to our complete satisfaction and we are happy to recommend them to others."
– Dr. Heiko Cramer, Co-founder
Components of next-gen leadership
Following an expansion of our product portfolio and an internal restructuring to increase agility, we wanted to develop the international leadership of the Belgian organisation. To manage clients and people globally, we needed a team ready for the future. Mercuri Urval did an excellent job in translating our change needs into something our leaders could stand behind, in a way that made them excited about the needed capability development. This approach created true change agents and greatly improved consistency in our leadership."
– Pieter Vandewalle, GM
More aligned leadership, same passionate spirit
As we are maturing as a company and aligning our international leadership, it is vital we don't lose that driven spirit that has come to define Osudio. We needed to determine exactly which competencies and personalities would be the key to our future. Mercuri Urval made the intangible tangible, and provided the insights needed to form the management teams capable of leading our organisation as a driven uniform international community."
