Sectors we work in

Thoughtpost Governance specialises in providing quality board advisory services to private companies, government entities and medium to large not-for-profit organisations.  Our work is grounded in the Directorship Theory; an insightful system of thinking by Andrew Donovan and Peter Tunjic.

Thoughtpost Governance see Boards as a business unit in themselves, requiring clarity of purpose and role, a skilled, resourced and well-functioning team, appropriate behaviours, a strong performance management system and a culture of continuous improvement.

We use a range of tools that aims to create high performance Board and Board–Management partnerships by:

  • Establishing a shared purpose, direction and business model (success formulae), including an appropriate risk appetite and organisational culture;
  • Establishing shared clarity and agreement on the role of the Board and of Management;
  • Building strong board capability and succession planning;
  • Designing or strengthening board processes including the board reporting (intelligence) system, board meeting performance and the board committee system; and
  • Conducting board performance assessments and develop board continuous improvement programs.
