The Tyson report

A report commissioned by the Department of Trade and Industry following the publication of the Higgs Review of the role and effectiveness of non-executive directors

The Tyson Report was commissioned by the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) and published on 19 June 2003. The report looked at how companies might recruit non-executives from a wider pool of talent and followed the directive from the Higgs Review for the group to 'describe the profile of relevant skills and experience that make an effective non-executive director with a non-commercial background'.
