A full range of services. So your board can govern more successfully.


Every board has its own mission. Its own strengths. Its own weaknesses. Its own issues.

Likewise, every board member has his or her own experiences that are brought to the table. Their unique set of values. Their different ideas of how things should be done.

The Governance Group not only recognizes the differences that are likely to exist on a board, we celebrate the diversity and utilize it to the board’s advantage…something that’s become a hallmark of Vince Battistelli’s work with boards and chief executives for 25 years.

The areas that our services encompass are:

Assessing Board Performance

Providing your board with an objective, professional assessment of its strengths, weaknesses, knowledge and practice gaps, governing infrastructure, and relationship with its Chief Executive. The assessment is accompanied by recommendations and strategies for action.
