Board Practice Service
As the strategic hubs of organizations, it is the primary task of Boards to ensure the enduring vitality of the companies they drive. Yet their own fitness is just as critical. Today’s Boards are running strategic and operational marathons, increasingly in the spotlight and challenged by share- and stakeholder groups who have never been more informed, demanding, or vocal.
High-functioning Boards are successfully running the extra mile. They are representative and diverse, not only in terms of demographic statistics, but characteristics, (diversity of “thought”).
Their Independent Directors are integrated in a way that has risen beyond statutory norms to new levels of advisory excellence. They are not only fit for today, but justifiably confident in their succession for tomorrow. Their Nominations Committees have widened their scope: from preserving a traditional inner circle of familiar candidates, to acting as an expert and objective human capital interface. One that also has a firm grip on technology and innovation.
Yet the reality for most Boards is different.
As organizations reconfigure for growth and globalization, many are facing serious governance questions for the first time. Their task is complicated by regulatory developments whose pace and form differs by geography, ownership type, listed status and, in some countries, sector. Further dilemmas surround the transfer of leadership from family or founding members to external professionals, or structural tensions pitching centralization versus decentralization.
Yet, despite unevenness, the underlying trend in global governance legislation is ticking up towards new and better standards, as national regulatory bodies look to the global picture for learning and synchronicity.
As such, the transformative opportunities for Boards have never been greater. All the more so, if they benefit from robust external advisorship.Our Expertise
Amrop works to assure the design and implemention of diverse, forward looking and connected boards. We act as Trusted Advisor to the Executive, Supervisory and Advisory Boards of dynamic organizations all over the world, across a spectrum of industries.

External Succession Service
Our clients have greatly benefited from our specialized integrated approach to succession, thereby effectively navigating the dynamics of managing the top leadership team and changing context of business.
The changing landscape of business challenges has fuelled the complexity of talent management for most companies. Choice of a successor for a senior leader is the most important decision for a company. Despite having a succession program internally, attrition and performance issues of senior leadership team make companies vulnerable to risk. Boardroom dilemmas on succession are:
- How does the Board de-risk business from unplanned departure of a senior leader?
- Do we have the right successor internally in today’s business context?
- Can we let this senior leader go, even though he/she is a suboptimal choice today?
- We wish to build this new business – will we have the right leadership talent to advance it at the right time?
Amrop India’s External Succession Practice works with Boards to address these dilemmas. Our extensive experience in Executive Search and Board Consulting pulls together internal succession processes with an external succession model, creating a powerful and robust succession program.
The attrition risks tilt the balance of performance equation between companies and executive leaders in favor of the executives. Many a times, a sub optimal performance is tolerated because of lack of options. Investing in external succession has brought the balance back for our clients. Our specialized succession program provides confidence to Boards to make the right choice without compromising on growth of business.
