Preview of Encourage the Board to Think, Plan and Act Strategically Topic
Our research shows:
“84% of NFP and government entity CEOs believe their boards interfere in operational issues which should be the domain of management. Only 23% of chairs or boards agree” and “84% of government and NFP boards don’t measure strategic outcomes (strategic KPIs). They only measure activities”.
Encourage the Board to Think, Plan and Act Strategically is about helping boards understand the importance of working at a strategic level and not spending an inordinate amount of time on the small details which should be left to management. It provides some tools to assist, including a tested and tried process for developing a robust 2-3 page strategic plan.
The topic looks at:
- the meaning of “Strategy”
- the board’s responsibility for Strategy
- the strategic planning process
- the board’s Strategy toolbox
You will also get:
- a copy of the power points
- a checklist so your board can see how it measures up
It’s a perfect topic for:
- viewing before strategic planning exercises
- setting the board’s agenda so the strategic comes first
