To relieve pressure on internal resources, supervisory boards often seek independent external support on operational matters for top managers. There are many reasons why this may be necessary: Suitable individuals may not be available internally for cost reasons, or there may be confidential HR issues to be dealt with. External specialists offer expertise in supervising and supporting top managers. Moreover, the increasing regulation of compensation, particularly in banks and more generally for board members, calls for up-to-date knowledge about what options are available. Often it is impossible or uneconomical to make such expert knowledge available internally.
