Bad Governance Costs Big
Board members intuitively understand that they are serving others, but when challenges arise, they often are unclear as to how to proceed. Board members often conflict over roles and procedures rather than focusing on the business of the organization. All too often, boards feel like they are simply rubberstamping the work of others or are mired in endless detail. Either way, board members want to be more effective.
We Understand Your Governance Challenge
Each organization is different and must choose the governance practices that best serve its stakeholders. We begin by understanding your organization’s needs and then collaboratively develop a range of options. Our goal is to help you understand the implications of each governance choice so you can make the right decision for your organization. Along with the traditional board model, we are also qualified to work with the Policy Governance® model, considered by many to meet the highest standards of organizational governance.
We Produce Results
Through our work, our clients can expect the following:
- The Board is able to define what the organization will accomplish; who or what will benefit from its work.
- The CEO/Executive Director understands the extent of her authority and what she is supposed to accomplish.
- The Board thoroughly but fairly monitors the work of the CEO/Executive Director, evaluating her work against explicit criteria.
- The Board has clearly articulated roles and rules through which it accomplishes its work.
