How you get things done determines how effective you are. Business processes are the practices undertaken each day to meet objectives and achieve goals. They are written down and are monitored. They keep things simple and deliver strong results. Within the not-for-profit sector they would include Board governance, operations, regulations and risk, organization and people systems, and financial practices.
Board governance is often the first place to look for improvement. The practices used by the Board and management give clarity to responsibilities. It’s also the way Boards stay relevant with refreshed talent and expanding networks. The focus is on strategy, oversight, risk and leadership.
Boards use policies and approved practices to guide their management. A comprehensive package saves the time and effort necessary when things are not clear and orderly. Organizational policies and procedures help your Board and management stay focused on your strategy, on the health of your organization in a risk-managed environment, and on the development of your senior leaders so even more can be accomplished.
A key responsibility of your Board and management is the financial strength and stability of your organization. Solid business practices keep reporting reliable and activities timely. They protect the viability of the enterprise. Osborne provides information and leadership in the establishment of comprehensive organization, people and financial processes.
