2into3 Governance Advisory Services
Good governance comes directly from the board. A board should typically meet on a monthly basis and is strategically focussed. A focussed governance plan and project will speed the journey to good and sustainable governance practices, by the board and by the executive team.
2into3 has developed governance practices with boards and leadership teams across the sector. We present your board with a range of options, which can be customised to suit your needs. Some of these include:
- Effectiveness surveys for all board members
- Board member interviews
- Board development programmes
- Board effectiveness feedback with action plans and recommendations
- Formal reports on governance for the board.
