The Tyson Report on the Recruitment and Development of Non-Executive Directors
The report by Derek Higgs on the Role and Effectiveness of Non-Executive Directors raised the agenda of boardroom effectiveness. This report provides another piece of the jigsaw by highlighting how a range of different backgrounds and experiences among board members can enhance board effectiveness and by exploring how a
broader range of non-executive directors can be identified and recruited. The selection of each non-executive director (NED) should rest on a careful assessment of the needs and challenges of a particular company and on a broad, transparent and rigorous search that reflects this assessment.
