Nonprofit organizations require strong, innovative leadership, especially during uncertain times. Governing for Nonprofit Excellence, an HBS Social Enterprise Initiative program, is designed to maximize the contributions of individual nonprofit board members. Participants are challenged to examine their role and the role of their boards in improving organizational effectiveness:

  • When was the last time your board discussed what outputs and outcomes you should be tracking?
  • When was the last time you included brainstorming time on the board agenda?
  • How do you focus your board on metrics that matter?

This program brings together chairs and other members of nonprofit boards to assess their organizations, rethink their board roles and maximize their contributions to their organizations.
