One of the most critical initiatives any sporting organisation can undergo is the Building of the Board.
As the Board provides strategic direction, leadership and vision to the organisation, it is essential to consider the P-P-P of the Board, i.e.:
- The quality of the People who sit on the Board – who they are;
- The Professionalism of the people who sit on the Board – what skills, knowledge and experience they bring to the Board;
- The Practices of the people who sit on the Board – what they do and how they do it.
Seems simple enough, but why do so many get it so wrong?
