Improving Board Decision-Making Quality (#953.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits
 
Boards exist to make decisions on behalf of the members. At a time when cooperative governance is under scrutiny, boards are looking for ways to demonstrate that their decisions are grounded in fair process and with appropriate objectivity and due diligence. Recognizing, and avoiding, the common pitfalls of decision-making can increase the likelihood of the board making a good decision while decreasing the risks of making bad ones. This course delves into the hurdles, traps, and minefields that can negatively affect boardroom decision-making and provides strategies for counterbalancing them.

Key Topics:
  • Increasing the likelihood of good decisions
  • Recognizing decision-making roadblocks
  • Applying strategies and tactics to mitigate decision-making roadblocks
