Defining the role of the board and making it fit for purpose

Transforming a board can be a journey with many obstacles.

It’s a process that many organisations will have to face and the way it is facilitated can be vital to the success.

But having a governance structure not fit for purpose can be dangerous for an organisation.

On this page we currently have two good governance case studies around making a board fit for purpose:

Badminton GB Dr Mary Hardwick, chair of Badminton GB discusses how the organisation introduced independent non-executive directors and what advice she would give to other organisations.

Surf Life Saving GB – Chief executive Esther Pearson discusses how the organisation resolved governance issues that had led to financial insecurity.

For more information on any of the case studies contact the governance team.
