We are often asked to help with “Board Development” and we always politely decline. Generally speaking, spending time on “Board Development” treats the symptom not the disease.

Board Members have 3 duties:
When an organization has a concise business plan, with a clear vision of success, milestones, metrics, financial projections, and clear dashboards (both programmatic and financial), being on a board is productive and enjoyable. And it’s easy to find new board members.
Without a solid plan like this and its concomitant simplicity, transparency and accountability, being a board member can be a frustrating time sponge. Which is why so much ink is spilled, we suspect, on the topic of Board Development.
