A three member panel has been appointed to carry out a wholesale review of the Silver Ferns failed Commonwealth Games campaign.
It will be headed by Auckland lawyer and former Netball New Zealand chair Don Mackinnon.
It will also include America's Cup Team New Zealand chief operating officer Kevin Shoebridge along with former Silver Fern, businesswoman and Pasifika community Linda Vagana.
New Zealand failed to win a medal at the Gold Coast Games and it was the first time since the sport was introduced at the Games in 1998 that the Silver Ferns had not reached the final.
The review will cover all aspects of the Silver Ferns performance at Commonwealth Games including the performance preparation and planning, team strategy and tactics, resources committed to the campaign, leadership capability, selection policies and processes and team culture.
It will cover a period from January 1st, 2016 until the present time and the panel will be asked to identify and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the campaign and any other factors contributing to the Silver Ferns' results.
They will also be asked to identify any other relevant areas that may have contributed to the performance of the Silver Ferns including high performance pathways, competition structures and alignment with the zones and franchises.
The review process will include Silver Ferns coaches, management and athletes, NNZ management and board members, ANZ Premiership franchise coaches, New Zealand Netball Players' Association, High Performance New Zealand and key influencers to Netball as determined by the panel.
"We were extremely disappointed with the results at the Commonwealth Games and need to understand what influenced the team's performance," said Netball Netball New Zealand chair Allison Ferguson.
"We believe a thorough independent review is needed if we're to get it right for the future of the Silver Ferns and we are thrilled with the quality of the panel we have been able to secure," she said.
Chair of the Review Panel Don Mackinnon said the panel was looking forward to the challenge ahead and confirmed that the process would be thorough and fair.
"Netball is an incredibly important part of the fabric of New Zealand sport and the sport should be applauded for having the courage to open themselves up to the scrutiny of an independent review," he said.
A peer review will take place at the completion of the panel's findings to ensure the appropriate questions have been asked in all areas.
Former Silver Ferns captain Tracey Fear, who has a wealth of High Performance experience in both Australia and New Zealand, and High Performance Sport New Zealand senior performance consultant Eddie Kohlhase will lead the peer review.

FULLTIME - SILVER FERNS 39 ENGLAND ROSES 52
England were just too good for the Silver Ferns in the final quarter. Their defence was key to their win, earning themselves several turnovers at will. England scored 14 points in the final quarter with New Zealand only able to convert five points.
Te Paea Selby-Rickit misses her first shot of the match but gets the rebound and converts her second attempt. NZ get a turnover late in the quarter but appears Maria Folau wasn't aware of how much time was on the clock. A missed chance to close the gap - England lead 38-34.
England have been relentless on defence and secure another turnover. They have been giving the home side real trouble inside the shooting circle. But the Silver Ferns are starting to find their groove - closing the gap.
The scores are level after England make a mistake at the middle of the court to hand the ball back to the Ferns. Ameliaranne Ekenasio has converted one shot with Maria Folau landing a long range goal.
QUARTER 1 - SILVER FERNS 0 ENGLAND ROSES 0
And we are underway with the Silver Ferns with possession to start match. Maria Folau misses her first shot at goal and England get the rebound and move the ball quickly down the court.
A new dawn rises on the Silver Ferns and New Zealand netball with Noeline Taurua taking charge of the side following a disastrous final 10 months under Janine Southby.
Taurua's first test comes in the shape of Commonwealth Games gold medallists England.
New Zealand will be bolstered by the return of legends Casey Kopua, and Laura Langman - who will assume the captaincy as she makes her international comeback.
It's not all positives for the Silver Ferns with star defender Temalisi Fakahokotau ruled out for the rest of the year with a ruptured ACL.
