There are steps that directors and boards can take to ensure that those who support them are themselves supported and enabled to obtain access to the information and papers they need to fulfil their responsibilities, avoid conflicts of interest and provide independent and objective advice. This article considers factors that senior executives and audit, legal, governance, risk, compliance and other management services professionals should consider when making the transition on a whole or part-time basis from supporting management and improving performance to supporting the board and providing assurance.
