Board Management E-learning Workshop 

Understanding Programs: A Great Unrecognized Correlate to Board Excellence — What You Should Do About It

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 2-3pm EST 

It may sound obvious, but boards cannot lead effectively if they do not understand the organization’s work.  BoardSource’s 2017 study, Leading with Intent, shows just how important this understanding is. 

Based on this research, board members’ knowledge of programs correlates to stronger (or weaker) performance across several areas, including:

  • Strategic thinking and planning
  • Overall engagement and commitment
  • External leadership and ambassadorship, including fundraising and advocacy

As important as the board’s knowledge of programs is, the average grade executives gave their boards in this crucial area was a “B.” 

In this webinar, we’ll delve into the findings from Leading with Intent to illustrate what you lose when your board fundamentally doesn’t understand the organization’s programs, and we’ll share practical advice and guidance for how executives and board chairs can provide board members with ongoing opportunities to understand the organization’s mission and work.
