Investigating trustee board effectiveness

An “investigative report into the behaviours and effectiveness of the modern charity board” has been produced by Onboard and Bates Wells Braithwaite.

The research for ‘Governing with Intent’ involved 320 people – board members, chairs, chief executives and senior managers – although there is no indication of size of organisations they represented (we would guess mainly medium to large charities).

The report examines attitudes around how the board performs, the relationship between the board and the chief executive, and how trustees view the role of new technologies in governance. It also  makes recommendations on how governance could be improved.
