CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We can offer all our board services digitally and support you in these ways.

Bvalco

Bvalco helps boards and directors to be the best they can be through board evaluations, advice and training.

Our board evaluations are different. By combining commercial experience with behavioural psychology and governance expertise, we can provide a deeper understanding of board psychology and therefore clearer insights to achieve greater effectiveness.

Bvalco is concerned not with how well a board has performed, but on how well it could perform; we work with boards to create a clear plan of action to meet their evolving challenges and to be fit for the future. Furthermore, our board services don’t just help you to stretch the strategic thinking, but also create the right culture, roles and development to get you there. The Bvalco team will always be engaging, intelligent, straight-talking and when necessary, challenging.

What we’re thinking about

Owning the problem

By | 10/05/2022

There is a danger that a board and its constituent members, having engaged an external person to conduct an evaluation and shared with them in confidential sessions their concerns and issues, will feel that they have off-loaded the problems for another then to resolve.

Difficult decisions – the need for information

By | 13/04/2022

Information for the board needs to be well presented and clear as to what it covers and what is its purpose. If the executive is looking for a decision from the board, this needs to be clear from the face of the document. Too much control can stifle innovation and fetter the ability of the board to engage in high quality debate.

Managing Succession

By | 21/02/2022

Managing succession remains a challenging process, and it often takes the intervention of an independent third party with whom directors feel able to share their concerns for it to be raised and advanced.
