Board Governance 2017-01-24T14:28:15+00:00

Business Advice Tasmania assists organisations to develop better board governance and gain an understanding of the role and responsibilities of the board and the people and processes that make up the board.

Boards vary from organisation to organisation in many characteristics. However, there are common principles and issues which apply to all Boards. Boards should be focused on developing the organisation to meet the needs of their stakeholders.

Board members are required to have a clear understanding of what the Board does and what the board member’s roles and responsibilities are. Many of the characteristics of good governance are relevant to SMEs, Public Companies and Not for Profit Organisations.

Business Advice Tasmania help Boards develop their processes and improve their efficiency through:
