"The Corporate Fund offers a Board Self-Assessment Kit which allows non-profit boards to assess their effectiveness in a variety of areas. The kit asks board members to rate their board in 12 different areas, ranging from Board-Staff roles to External Relations Practices. Tallying results can give a board a picture of where their strengths lie and what areas to focus on for improvement." The pdf user guide is detailed and well organized. While this assessment requires some planning and some time, you will undeniably find benefits to its conduct.
This tool is addressed to NGOs, and to consultants and support organisations working with them. From this webpage, you can download the 24 pages user guide (pdf format) while the brainstorming, action plan and other worksheets are also available in Word format, so that you can modify them according to your needs. Using the SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats assessment), this tool will go over your "management processes, finances, staffing, relationships with others and results" so to provide you with a comprehensive review of your organization.
