Leading the change: Good governance and effective management of NPOs

As non profits around the world face challenges adverse publicity factors that impact on reputation have moved centre stage. Non profit leaders and fundraisers know that they can not raise funds effectively unless they meet heightened expectations. The status quo is not an option.

Nimble organisations are successful organisations. Is yours light on its feet, able to react, adapt and change as needed to stay best in class in governance, risk management and performance measurement? Are you hesitating right now as you consider that question? Or even responding with a resounding, “No, we’re not!”?

Most change efforts do not deliver up to expectations. What is the difference between successful transformational change and simply tweaking? Boards and senior management need to ensure that they can lead and shape successful change efforts big and small. This workshop will discuss how to implement risk management, the factors that lead to successful change, lessons learned, how to recognize when change is needed – and how to make it happen.
