“Whether it’s a community sport, charity or business, every organisation needs good governance AND good operations. But have you ever stopped to explore where the line between the two should be? In the community sector, many board and committee members rise to leadership positions almost by default. They typically have two motivations: interest and passion. But while each board member may have been on the operational side of their organisation for many years, they don’t necessarily have a focused, systemised approach to good governance. So it’s easy for them to keep getting drawn back into operations, leaving all of the governance duties to slip. Understanding the separation of governance and operations can be critical to the success of an organisation. Michael’s short presentation will help you see the board’s role in a new way by shining a light on that line between the two, and help you reassess how much time you get to spend ON the business, while still making sure all the operational duties are covered.” – Michael Connelly | Managing Director | CPR Group
