The context in which I define capability is around the organisation’s preparedness to proactively develop technological disruption, the speed at which it can react to a competitor’s disruptive technology and how nimble is it with respect to change readiness.
These three factors are very real in today’s environment so is your organisation (whether it for profit or for community good) ready?
I would be very interested to receive your assessment.
As a component of your organisation’s capability, a key factor is the effectiveness of your governance. BoardSource recently published a very helpful formula for getting effective governance down to six essential ingredients. They are:
The mission or Purpose
The leadership of the Board and the organisation
The composition of the Board and staff
Strategic direction and planning
So how would you rank your organisation on a scale of 1 – 4 (where 1 is ‘we’ve got a lot of work to do’) and 4 is where we ought to be to be a leader in our sector)?
