Board Effectiveness Checklist: How to Increase Success

Nonprofit boards must adapt swiftly to evolving demands. The board effectiveness checklist is key, ensuring informed, secure, collaborative, and purpose-driven governance. The technology, processes and skills that today’s nonprofit board members and trustees need are evolving as quickly as the external landscape. Organisations must be all at once more informed, more secure, more collaborative and more purpose-driven.

To fully meet changes and modern governance standards, board members must have a grasp of all the workflows, insights, policies, stakeholders and moving parts that make up the nonprofit organisation and its activities. Without it, leaders may fail to make the right decisions at critical times and can expose their organisations to costly governance deficits and operational risks.

Board effectiveness reflects the board’s ability to deliver on its mission and achieve its goals. The Board Effectiveness Checklist, organised into key areas, will help your nonprofit board operate even more effectively.
