If your organization is looking for a better approach to governance, strategic planning,
or government relations, TN Governance and Strategy will review and analyze your current
processes and performance, to develop a gap analysis and then work with you to develop
options to implement improvements and best practices going forward.
Start with an assessment of your board governance to determine the strengths and areas for improvement. Some key areas for review and assessment include the following:
Director recruitment and orientation
Board and CEO assessment process
Board competency and skills matrix
Board involvement in strategic planning
Committee structure, terms of reference, workplans
Board oversight of, and relationship with the CEO and senior management
Board training and development
It is important to know where your organization currently stands and where it intends to go. Ensuring that your vision, mission and values are consistent with the purpose and strategy you have identified for the organization is the first step. It all begins with a review of your current principles, strategy and the planning process in place.
Strategic plan development starts with an analysis of the Strengths and Weaknesses (internal), Opportunities and Threats (external) and an Environmental Scan of the organization and its environment which includes a review of the competition and key risks facing the organization. A strategic plan that is well communicated to the organization and understood by employees will be much easier to execute and achieve.
Performance measures need to be in place otherwise how will you know if the organization has achieved what it set out to do?
A balanced scorecard approach can help to ensure that the key pillars of your organization are represented in what you do and that you are working towards your goals. Having a repeatable strategic planning process ensures consistency of effort in working towards the desired vision, purpose and outcomes over the time horizon identified by your organization.
