Getting the right skills on your board requires the right succession plan. In this webinar we talk about the skills needed today by boards; how boards can plan to make sure their team is diverse with the experience needed.
Dr Alice Pearce a governance officer leads this webinar and talks about best practice.
In this webinar we explore new ways of working; whether this is hot desking, home working and using digital technology. We look at how organisations are changing, what skills new ways of working require and the benfits to staff and customers and organisations as a whole. What do board members need to be aware of? What will the future hold with the speed of change in technology?
The importance of managing change in this fast changing world is not to be underestimated. Many organisations describe themselves as being in a state of “wobble” as they ask “how do we reshape ourselves?” Listen to this thought provoking webinar.
Board Appraisal and Governance Review.
Shared services are increasingly being seen as a VfM option to merger. Before the new year the government was promoting this for housing associations. This webinar will look at the shared service option and the pros and cons of this.
This webinar looks at what staff and the board need to do to go beyond the first stage of considering a merger. We look at best practice advice on preparing a strategic case, an outline business case and a full business case; the process and preparation required to decide on the merger options partner and business case before making the final decision on whether to merge with a preferred partner.
The New Code on Mergers was developed by the National Housing Federation and published in December 2015. While this covers England, the code will be of interest to housing associations in Scotland and Wales as it suggests best practice in decision making in the eary stages of considering an approach by another organisation.
Mergers have always been a hot topic but more so recently. But just how important is the size of the housing association? Is a merger inevitable in today’s climate? What are the upsides and downsides of mergers? What other options can be explored? We will cover these pressing issues throughout January. Next Friday the discussion will focus on what the code says, why it was developed and what practices it is intended to influence for the best.
