Governance Action Planning 2012
On 24 May 2012 we hosted a one day workshop on how to put in place an Action Plan against the Voluntary Code of Good Governance for the Sport and Recreation Sector.
The workshop was held at Birkbeck, University of London and attended by a number of organisations who are looking at creating governance improvement plans.
The overall aim of workshop was to enable sports organisations to develop a plan of action to improve the way in which they operate, in line with the requirements of the Voluntary Code of Good Governance for the Sport and Recreation Sector.
Delegates left the workshop with the following:
- Refreshed commitment to using the Voluntary Code of Good Governance to trigger continuous improvement in governance
- Enhanced vision of what their organisation will be like in the future
- Insight to the ‘seven principles’ of good governance for the sport & recreation sector
- Clear understanding of how to conduct self-assessment using the seven principles
- Enhanced understanding of improvement action planning principles
- Enhanced relationships with similar like-minded organisation and opportunities to support each other to improve (e.g. sharing practices relating to the Code of Good Governance, etc)
- A way forward for their organisation
The workshop was facilitated by Steve Wood. Steve is a Corporate Coach who has specialised in organisational improvement especially within the sport sector for the past 16 years. He has played a leading role in developing formal improvement tools for the sector, including the initial development of Quest, the CSP version of TAES & Aquamark. He is the author of the new version of CSIT (the improvement toolkit for the culture, sport & green space sectors).
