Get practical tools, insights and pathways for undertaking a review of how your organisation is governed to ensure you are meeting your legal requirements and operating as effectively as possible.
Not every profit for purpose business always functions at the top of its game. Some Boards, especially those with long term members or staff may think there’s nothing in their organisation that needs addressing or that they don’t know. With turnover of Board members and Executive or other key staff, areas of the organisation can cease to function as one entity resulting in tension and conflict, an increased staff turnover or a downturn in performance.
A Governance Review of Audit can be selective or wide ranging and include bedrock documents such as your constitution, by-laws and strategic plan but may go on to encompass policies, procedures, reporting, meeting documents, record keeping and board management. Focussing on key areas such as Culture & Leadership, Resource Management, Finance & Risk, Membership and Integrity can reveal the underlying culture and inconsistencies in your organisation and lead to a concise map showing how to address the real issues and create a completely new culture in your staff, members and Board.
In this program we will discuss if you should and how you could perform your own review, how to effectively work with an external reviewer and how to manage the final report on necessary changes to get the most benefit for your organisation.
The session is excellent for larger staffed organisations seeking to benchmark their organisations and improve their governance for more effective management.
This session can be run as an in-house workshop tailored to your organisation. Please contact the speaker for more information.
