#TrusteeWeek Top 5 Countdown – No.1
12 November 19
It’s the Gallanach #TrusteeWeek top 5 countdown time.
Coming in at no.1 on the activities charity boards could do better is…
What are your long term funding prospects? What will your beneficiaries want from you in a few years time as the world changes? What might be the impact of AI, driverless cars, climate change and an ageing population?
These, and many others, are questions boards should be contemplating. Not to attempt to predict the future but rather to prepare for the inevitable change, whatever form it might take.
My view is boards should spend equal time on monitoring current performance and impact, reflecting on past and making current big decisions, and thinking about and preparing for the future.
How much time does your board spend on future thinking?
