Our easy-to-use Governance Improvement Tool lets you benchmark your organisation’s current governance arrangements online against established standards and best practice. Gain insights through a bespoke Governance Report and SMART Action Plan which identifies any gaps and opportunities for improvement. Click here to watch a short video on how to use it and how it can help your Board improve governance in your charity.
Your responses are automatically saved, and you can complete it at your own pace. However, some Boards have completed it in less than two hours while others have completed it over the course of a week or more. Either way, results are instantly available for download once all questions have been answered.
While the tool was designed with charities in mind, it is relevant for other not-for-profit bodies such as sports clubs, schools, credit unions, enterprise agencies, etc. Consequently, any voluntary Board or Committee looking to improve its corporate governance can use the Tool.
Although the Governance Improvement Tool is based on UK governance standards, UK governance standards are the foundation of Codes of Governance in many countries across the world. However, the tool offers flexibility, as it allows you to modify the Final Report and SMART Action Plan to meet your country’s specific standards and circumstances.
There is a separate version of the Governance Improvement Tool for public bodies here.
The tool costs only £695 with 12 months unlimited use.
