The Board is the final and highest decision-making body within an organization. Mandatorily, it is required that every organization have a duly constituted Board. However, in actual practice it has been seen that while some Boards work in a very effective manner, there are others who exist for the sake of records. These are the two extreme scenarios in Non-Profit Organizations. A regular, well-structured Board evaluation process helps in enhancing efficiency and effectiveness. However, it is important to have a clear political will at the highest leadership level to implement a Board evaluation process.

There are no legal or statutory compulsions on the part of the Board to undertake its own evaluation. However, for a learning and pro-active Board, it always adds value to its functioning and effectiveness if regular Board evaluations take place.
