Roles and responsibilities of the Board Member
For Board Members wanting to understand their role better, and the relationship between the Board and the Executive, this examines how well-defined the responsibilities are in practice.
- The distinction between strategic and operational activities
- Looking at the bigger picture – the Board’s role in strategic activities
- Holding the Executive to account – dealing with concerns about operational activities
- The Board and the Executive working together without treading on each other’s toes
- Being an effective thinking partner for your executive colleagues
Central Consultancy and Training managed two strategy development days for the Human City Institute's Board of Trustees. Both days were run extremely well and resulted in an excellent report to the Board summarising how to develop the charity and realise a successful future. Human City Institute
This successful series of Masterclasses was developed to meet the needs of our Board – we were not shoehorned into a pre-existing programme. The Orbit Heart of England Board is diverse - including residents, health and local government professionals, and senior people from the private sector – and every member has got something out of it. We were impressed that it offered a flexible framework which can be varied to meet individual needs - especially so with the coaching support you provided for less experienced Board members, which equipped them to participate on an equal basis. Our new Chair has been impressed by how well the programme has been received. Orbit Heart of England
