Being Creative

A creative approach can enable an organisation to produce quality plans vthat incorporate clear direction and strategic thinking...

Every successful organisation can trace its beginnings to an energetic group of people with exciting ideas who decided to make them happen. As ideas progress to action, an organisation is formed.

Ensuring Human Resources are Managed

Governing bodies should ensure there are open channels of communication with employees and volunteers and consult them on issues of importance...

Duty of care

Holding Effective Meetings

Governing bodies should ensure there are ways for confidential matters to be recorded, and minutes to be filed securely...

The vast majority of a governing body's work is carried out through meetings of one kind or another.

Planning

Holding an 'away day' led by an external facilitator can be an effective means of kick-starting the planning process...

Planning is vital as it prevents wasted resources, haphazard developments and conflict. Planning is one of the main contributions a governing body will make to organisational success.

Renewal

It is very helpful to adopt a long-term view of the skills, experience and commitment necessary...

The assumption that you can sit a group of people around a table and they will then automatically become a highly effective governing body is disappearing.
