Why do you need these resources?
Governance Matters’ recent survey of 200 directors and executives found:
One third of directors:
- don’t understand their legal duties and responsibilities at law
- don’t have the minimum skills including financial skills to serve on a Board
- don’t understand the Board’s role versus that of management
- feel their Board should improve its governance because of external expectations e.g. regulators like ACNC and APRA
over 40% of directors:
- did not get an adequate/comprehensive/valuable induction
- say their Board does not spend enough time on strategy
- feel that the “modus operandi” of the Board is not clearly and concisely set out in a Board Charter
one third of directors
- do not have the ideal skill set/diversity given the organisation’s strategic direction
