Preparing for the Future – Do or die for non-profit boards
13 Mar 2016
Life for non-profits is changing rapidly, and in many ways dramatically. Non-profit boards face a future that looks nothing like the past – one in which they must deal with changes in government policy, increased regulation and accountability, rising costs, higher funder expectations, the need to prove impact, systemic change, tougher competition and the impact of digital innovation.
At Koda, in our work with non-profit boards we have observed a growing appreciation of the need for change. Many of the responses we have seen suggest boards are looking for guidance in relation to how they should move forward. This paper frames the strategic agenda facing non-profit boards, sets out possible solutions to key issues and offers practical steps by which those solutions can be implemented by a forward-thinking board.
