Day & Date: Tuesday, 27th February 2018 
Time: 10.00 a.m. – 3.30 p.m.  
Venue: YMCA International House, Mumbai Central, Behind Maratha Mandir Cinema.   
Key Workshop Learning & Take-away:  
• Good Governance Best Practice 
• Risk Management 
• Performance Management 
• Value Protection 
• Value Creation 
• Change Management  

Boards and management of NGOs and other not for profit organisations need to be able to constantly respond to a number of questions:  

  • What is good governance and what are the necessary attributes for boards of the future? Structures, behaviors and competencies need to be fit for practice and understanding of what successful organisations are doing.  
  • Why we are here and where are we going to? This requires clear understanding of the mandate, mission, vision and values of the organisation.  
  • How do we get there? This requires a coherent strategy and operational plan to deliver against objectives.  
  • What might prevent us from getting there? This is the risk management piece. Risk management is not about being risk averse but about understanding the uncertainties that can prevent the organisation from achieving its goals.  
  • How do we know we are getting there? This is the performance measurement piece, tying into effective processes and delivering impact.  
  • How do we remain nimble? This requires recognition that change is constant and managing change needs to be understood at all levels   

Who should attend & why? 

Trustees of trusts, members of the governing body of societies, Directors on the Board of Non-profit companies, CEOs, COOs and all key senior executives would benefit from the learning at this workshop.  

Continuous learning and improvement is something that all Boards and Management need to consider. The organisations that are succeeding have recognized this and know that they need to be nimble and able to change and adapt. How do you stay best in class, in governance, risk management and performance measurement?   

This Workshop will discuss how to implement risk management that focuses on both value protection and value creation, linking strategy to risk. It will also discuss aspects of measuring performance and impact and will consider useful research on change management and strategy facing NGOs.   

We will discuss what leads to successful change, lessons learned, how to go about it and how to recognise when change is needed. Most change efforts do not deliver up to expectations. What is the difference between successful transformational change and simply tweaking? Boards and senior management need to ensure that they can lead and shape change efforts big and small.
