The market for board development services is evolving. The way boards work has changed: They are increasingly involved in supporting the executives to develop strategy and drive transformation, so their role has become more one of ‘hands-on advice’ rather than pure ‘check and balance’.

As such, chairs want to ensure that the board comprises the right mix of professional and personal competencies and perspectives and works together in the most efficient way. Systematic board development is now much more widespread, though Danish companies can still look to their neighbours for inspiration.
