The Code of Good Governance Healthcheck

This governance healthcheck is a self assessment tool which has been devised as a practical resource to assist committees/boards to work towards adhering to the principles of the Code of Good Governance.

The aim of this healthcheck questionnaire is to help committees/boards to review their governance arrangements, check that they have appropriate systems in place and identify areas where they could improve.  It is a best practice tool – it is not mandatory.  However, this resource can also help committees/boards of any size to demonstrate their good governance practices to their stakeholders, beneficiaries and funders alike.

Managing Change

Managing change is now a guaranteed part of any manager’s job.  Whether you are managing change at a day to day operational level or implementing it at a strategic level—change needs managed.  This master class looks at the theory of managing change and how to put it into practice in such a way to keep volunteers motivated.  Using case studies and own examples, participants will start to plan for managing change in their own organisation.  By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the change process in organisations
  • Outline the characteristics of good leadership
