At Digi-Board our aim is to demystify governance for charities by making it simple to understand and to assist those charities who have little governance experience on their boards.
The Charity Code of Governance (the 'Code') provides guidance to the board of trustees as to what is expected of them. For many charities the challenge is to know 'how well are we doing' to achieve alignment with the Code.
Digi-Board’s self-assessment governance review allows your charity to measure it’s progress by educating the board in the practical application of the Code by asking questions; 'How well do we……..?' and 'We could do better at………?' Click here to see how we do this. Our unique approach challenges the board to actively think about current governance practices and how they can be improved.
The Digi-Board review is non-judgemental. It highlights aspects of your charity's governance that need attention and indeed your strengths. Guidance from the Charity Commission is abundantly clear in its statement: “As a sector, we owe it to our beneficiaries, stakeholders and supporters to demonstrate exemplary leadership and governance."’
The way forward presents choices about how to assess how well your charity’s board practices align with the Code.
Pre-digital when pen and paper were the articles of work, the process to interview and collect data from Trustees and Senior Leadership Team was time consuming, laborious and elapsed time for the completion of the exercise was measured in months. This labour intensive activity is also expensive.
The Digi-Board way is to invite Trustees and Senior Leadership Team to complete an online questionnaire taking 30 - 40 minutes. A report is available as soon as the questionnaire is ended. Quick, easy, convenient, time saving and at a known cost. The digital alternative using advanced data analytics to save time and money.
